The process of Faux Chenille starts with layering of vintage and upcycled fabrics, and since they were thin fabrics, there are many layers wich gives a nice think fabric.

Then stitching the whole package on the diagonal en cutting the layers between the stitches.

And after washing and drying the result is a multicolored fluffy fabric that strongly reminds us of fordite, that wonderful layered stuff obtained from the dried up layers of paint in the automobil industry, therefore the name fordite. Fordite cabochons are used in jewelry, but they are very rare nowadays because of new painting techniques that don't leave residues.

We finished the bag with upcycled blue leather (some pre-loved signes only give extra charm to this bag!), this bag is perfect for any occassion and will catch many jealous eyes!
Closes with a nice strong zipper.
