Lovely burgundy coats are hard to come by, so it's exciting to find one in such good condition. Because the coat was on the small side I decided to make a scaled down version of my hobo bag, for those of you who prefer a more compact handbag. This one hangs nice and comfortably just on my hip - but I'm only 5'3, so it might be a bit shorter depending on your height.

Your bag will come gift-wrapped in a lovely cranberry coloured ribbon-tied pillow-box, all ready for giving!

The details:
❣ medium weight up-cycled rich burgundy leather coat reinforced with stabiliser for strength and structure
❣ one exterior pocket, an unaltered feature of the original jacket
❣ pretty brown burgundy and black floral genuine Japanese cotton lining features one zippered pocket and one divided (2 sections) patch pocket edged with leather piping
❣ silver-black metal rivets and 11 ½ inch metal zipper with leather zipper pull
❣ comfortable 2 inch wide strap that tappers to 1 1/4 inches at hand sewn covered rings
❣ measures approx 14w x 9h x 2.5d inches, 19 inches from shoulder to base when hanging. Depth is 2.5 inches at base but tappers towards strap
❣ comes with a swing tag featuring photo of original jacket

All my lovely bags are made personally by me and I love creating them. They are all one of a kind made from up cycled leather jackets, all with different personalities and features. No two are the same. As such the re-purposed fabric and leather may have some flaws that are reminders of their past lives, but this, and features such as old stitching lines on some items, are part of their vintage charm.
