This book bag is to protect your current paperback book from damage while you are not reading. It is great for travellers, commuters or shoppers - anytime you might need to slip a book into a larger suitcase, tote bag or briefcase and don't want to discover dog-eared corners and creased covers later on! My book bags are designed to fit standard sized paperback books, but can of course also be used for appropriately sized tablets, journals or simply to keep knick-knacks corralled.

The Cordoba Bag was hand-woven by me from reclaimed t-shirt yarn which I made myself from an old blue t-shirt (laundered, of course!) of my partner's. The design on it was the word 'Cordoba' in arabic-style script, hence the bag's name. I kept a few of the seams in the rolled yarn because I like their rustic homespun look. The warp threads under the tshirt yarn weft are new purple acrylic yarn and this colour can be glimpsed all across the bag.

The Cordoba Bag uses black press studs to hold the flap closed and these are covered on the front with cheerful crocheted purple flowers. The flowers are made from the same wool as the warp threads and the colour is shown most accurately in the first photograph. For some reason they're too blue in the other pictures.

The Cordoba Bag when closed measures 6 inches / 15 cm across and 9 inches / 23 cm from top to bottom. For illustration purposes it is shown enclosing a 13 cm by 20 cm book with 320 pages. (PLEASE NOTE: The book shown in one photo is for illustration purposes only and is not included in the sale!)
