ON SALE! Was $86.00, now $22.00!

If you think this bag’s fabric looks like something out of the 1970s, you’d be right! Made from a wonderfully textured vintage weave in chocolate, bronze and ochre, it sports pleated sides for a stylish shape, solid wooden handles, a hand-carved button and a center flap to secure the contents. Inside you’ll find two pockets that are perfect for a cell phone and keys. The purse is lined in chocolate cotton voile and features lots of decorative hand stitching and a reinforced bottom so that it will hold its shape. Please zoom in on the photos to see this bag’s great details.

Check out the separate listing for the skirt! You won’t see this matching set coming and going in your town.


10” wide at the opening, 11.5” wide at the base. 13.25” from the handles to the bottom. 5” deep.

This purse comes to you from Foundry Design, a one-woman factory of original styles hand-crafted from recycled, vintage and found fabrics I collect during my regular trips to thrift stores and other sources in the Chicago area. I use only the best materials to create new items, many of which are inspired by my primary vocation as a feature writer who covers arts, culture and travel subjects for magazines. I put as much care into crafting my clothing as I do my stories.
