- - Inspiration - -
While most of my inspiration comes from my little ones, this little piece came from a dream. A family dream we have of a simpler life on a big chunk of land. While our dream doesn't necessarily involve the adorable vintage caravan that I've printed here, this print sort of sums up the spirit of our someday-adventure.
Choosing happiness. Choosing joy in simplicity.

The print is made with an original lino cut block (5 x 7 inches) that was drawn, carved and printed by me. The ink is fabric-safe, water-based and non-toxic. All the colors are hand-mixed by me and can never be replicated perfectly. This particular print is a warm brown.
The print is done on a hand-dyed piece of cotton fabric which I then stitch, by machine, onto the bag using contrasting thread. The edges of the patch are frayed to give it a well-worn look.
- - Tote - -
The recycled cotton canvas tote is the perfect companion for a variety of activities like grocery shopping, daily errands, craft projects, travel, etc. All seams and stress points are double stitched for durability. Unlike bulkier totes, this bag folds easily to neatly fit in smaller spaces. The cotton web handles allow you to comfortably carry the bag either over the shoulder or as a tote.

This item can be machine washed and dried, however the print will last longest if washed on cold (inside out) and line-dried.
