Fabulous "storybag" - made in very limited quantities. Based on an Arthur Rackham illustration (taken from an original late 19th century edition).
Exceptionally well printed (we set up each one and do much colour and image adjustment for a fabulous final result and prints that are water-proof and completely fade=proof) on a rich semi-matt satin. Sides and backs are dupion 100% silk interfaced to give structure and strength.There's a top zip fastening (shown in the final photo - that bag is listed separately) and the bags are fully lined with one internal pocket.
These bags have the most gorgeous handwoven (no, really, and it's done here in Czech) strap – chosen from threads to tone with the bag so every handle is different. tThis uses a very old technique which is now rarely found. The result is a strap that is soft, but thick and strong. These are very special and look and feel gorgeous - folky, funky, silky and very sensual to the touch.
Finished with a sprinkling of fine Czech glass beads on the picture and high-quality metallic piping "framing" it.
The bags are NOT large tote-sized. They are about 7.25 inches by 9 inches. A nice practical handbag-size for purse, phone, comb and so on.
COLOUR NOTE - The teal colour is turning out to be very hard to capture in photos. The last photo is the nearest we have managed but in fact this colour is VERY vibrant and jewel-like, absolutely gorgeous and similar to a very rich dark turquoise or peacock. It's bright - and more blue than green, a really love shade.
