About

Purses, totes and small bags made one at a time from my own silk screened fabrics or from curated world textiles

Hello and thank you for visiting my website. My name is Nancy and I love to sew. You could find me at the machine at 8 years of age, when my Aunt Kathleen taught me how to make mitred corners on a place mat, and I have been sewing ever since. I take great pride in my work. Straight seams, careful stitching and study construction are important so that when you make a purchase from my shop, not only will you feel good about supporting the handmade marketplace, but you will also receive a unique product that is lovingly handmade with attention to detail and style.

There are now two lines in Nancy Newman Textiles. You can find fun and colourful purses in my Kantha line, each carefully made from vintage hand stitched cotton Kantha quilts from India. My new line ‘NNT’ meets function with form in sturdy bags made from 100% cotton waxed canvas. This is a 10-ounce cotton that has been imbued with food grade paraffin wax to make it waterproof. The fabric is dyed slightly lighter, then the wax darkens it, so when it gets crinkled, this lovely pattern forms. After awhile it looks like suede.

All of the straps are hand cut from bridle leather. They are dyed on the back, then riveted to each purse with a leather backing inside so you can count on it. There are holes for lots of room to adjust from shoulder to cross body.

Inside, you will find a heavy natural and indigo cotton ticking that is light enough for you to find your things in the bottom of the purse, but dark enough that it shouldn't show the dirt too badly. You can store your glasses, lipsticks and lots of stuff with the four inside pockets.

You will find that these purses all have a relaxed, casual vibe. The designs are simple and practical, with adjustable straps and lots of pockets. Nothing fussy or frilly, only natural fibres, conscientiously created.
