This purse's design reminds me to the old viking ships that used to come and go to the viking merchant town of Haddeby. This ancient settlement is located just south from my hometown. The form of this purse also reminds me of the leather belt bags Vikings used in their daily life.

Today in modern times, I made this purse with yellow, white and light grey stripes cotton canvas outside and light grey polyester lining. This purse has the perfect size to store all you need for a day out in town, or for shopping, studies, etc. A book A4 size fits inside easily.

❃ The Haddeby, pleated purse has 2 inside pockets: 1 big opened and divided in 4 smaller to store pens, or your cellphone, and one big zippered, where you can store your lipstick, a small mirror, your keys, etc.

❃ Made with quality and resistant striped Eco-friendly Cotton Canvas. Inside is a strong polyester lining fabric. The closure is with a thin and strong silver color magnetic snap.

❃ The 2 straps are made from the same Eco-friendly Cotton Canvas used for the outer bag, double folded and triple stitched for maximum resistance and durability.

❃ Double and triple stitched for maximum resistance and durability.

❃ Handmade completely by me, inspired by an existing design.


✼ Width: Upper - 12.5" (32 cm) / Lower: 16.5" (42cm)
✼ Height: 11.8" (30 cm)
✼ Depth: (aprox): 3" (8 cm)
