Handmade Vintage + Linen Tote Bags

gorgeous, one of a kind, handcrafted tote bags made of vintage + organic linens and/or canvases. the vintage linens are from an extensive collection that i have amassed over the years. the bag is split between new & old, the new materials all being either organic or eco-friendly in nature in mostly neutral shades. hand stitched details using coordinating irish waxed linen thread. hand cut vegetable dyed leather straps or i can accommodate a leather free option with hemp webbing. fully lined with one split interior pocket large enough to accommodate an iPad and a smaller one on the other side for your phone, etc. finished off with an antique brass mag snap closure encased in leather. i have several of these totes in various prints & they have & continue to be my everyday go to bags for several years now, carrying anything & everything from beach stuff to books + files + laptops to organic fruits + veggies, even 1 gallon glass jugs full of water... 'form follows function' beautifully with these totes & will last you for years to come.

**Please note that all of my goods are hand made using mostly recycled, vintage and/or new eco, sustainable, organic (as much as possible) material. I spend countless hours putting my love into each piece I create starting from hand picking the fabric, hand washing & drying, designing, drafting & cutting the pattern to sewing, stitching, ironing, hammering.... As with a lot of vintage or recycled materials, there are inherent markings that some may consider "flaws" ~ I personally find that it's these beautiful little "scars" that give each piece it's own special character, imparting a uniqueness that I could not create with a perfect pristine brand new piece of fabric. I love the perfection of imperfection and I don't discard fabrics due to these "scars". Please keep this perspective in mind if you are thinking of purchasing any of my goods.
