Slightly-Salmon Felted Bag

This beautiful purse is a dusty salmon with a complimentary silk bow and matching lining. It has soft braided leather handles. It is definitely one of my favorites. It is approximately 12 x 9 x 6 inches deep. Handles are 22".

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

In most bags the handles are anchored to a "stiffener", so the bag will never loose its shape and you can load it up with all of those things that end up in a purse. In other bags the handles are attached directly to the wool, or with re-enforced leather tabs.

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

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!

Felted wool has been around for thousands of years. It is practically indestructible, resists dirt, is eco-friendly, and soft to the touch. A damp cloth will wipe off most dirt. If you get into real trouble, send it back and I'll most likely be able to restore it to its new condition.
