Perfectly Plum Felted Wool Bag With Braided Leather Handles

The wool used for this felted bag was kettle-dyed. It is lined with a cell phone pocket and magnetic snap close. The handles are braided leather with a 9" drop. The bag is 9" high x 6" deep by 14" wide.

All of my bags are knit from 100% wool or a combination of wool and silk, felted, stretched, and molded by me.

Some bags are lined with beautiful silk that makes finding those rogue lipsticks an elegant adventure. I typically don't line large totes because they are likely to hold more stuff and the wool is much more durable than a silk lining. Other bags are unlined because the inside is as beautiful as the outside.

Felting is not an exact science, which is why my bags are one-of-a-kind. I price my bags based on the overall composition. I evaluate each one -- looking at the finished shape, color, handle, texture etc.

I love my bags and if you've gotten this far... you may be on the way to finding one you love too!
