Description

Sorry, we could not translate this listing to English.
Beautiful pair of old tote bags made from French vintage floral fabric.

Both of these bags were handmade many years ago and are in good condition apart from a little bit of fraying on one of the side seams, as can be seen in the third photo. The fabric, which I imagine was curtain fabric has beautiful muted shades of pinks and creams and has a gorgeous vintage look.

There are two handles on each bag, on one they are attached from back to front and on the other from side to side. These bags were very obviously handmade as the seams inside the bags are fraying, the handles have been attached using hand stitches and one of the bags is slightly longer than the other. There is a small brown stain on one of the bags which can be seen in the first photo (right hand bag) but it very much blends in with the pattern.

Although these bags were not expertly made and have some variations, I think this just adds to their uniqueness and charm. I would not recommend that they be used to carry things because they are quite delicate, but they are beautiful and unique bags to display.

Length without handles 12 1/4" (18" with handles) and width 10 1/4"
Length without handles 12 3/4" (just under 19" with handles), width 10 1/4"

Shipping policies

For items that are sent through the French postal service it is a requirement that you provide me with a contact telephone number. Please could you add this when placing your order.

If you would like to purchase more than one item, please contact me before purchasing for a quote for combined shipping.

Packages will be carefully wrapped and sent within 1 - 2 working days of receiving payment. Most of my orders are sent out on the same day that the purchase is made and if that is not possible it will be sent the following day. Wherever possible recycled packaging will be used.

I ship worldwide and alway aim to use the cheapest method possible but it is not always easy to give an exact cost before items are packaged, so any savings that I can make on the postage will always be refunded to you. To give you a rough guide, most items will be delivered to Europe within 3 - 8 days and to the US within 6 - 16 days. Items can occasionally get delayed in customs, especially around holiday times and unfortunately that is out of my control, so I would ask you to be patient if that happens. All of my shipping costs include a tracking number which will be provided when I send your shipping confirmation.

Please make sure that the address that I am given is correct and that if the payment and shipping addresses are different, please send me a message to let me know. I always ship to customers Etsy addresses so please ensure it is up to date and current. If your address is not current and your item has been sent there I cannot accept responsibility for the loss, delay, or return of the package, and any associated costs (eg, for re-dispatching the item). I also do not refund postage for unclaimed or undeliverable packages.


Please note that the purchaser is responsible for all customs and import duties, VAT and taxes due in their country.
