SOLD

This handbag is one of a kind and totally unique. You will never see another like it.
A lot of love, thought, time and patience has gone into it's production which is reflected in the price.

Made from cotton linen printed with an antique world map, edged with synthetic black leather piping and finished with chrome fittings and zips.
The bag is fully lined in plain, natural cream coloured cotton linen and has one inner pocket.

The bag charm is made up of a working, chrome finished compass and a silver plated, solid brass, miniature magnifying glass among silver tone chain linked with black and clear faceted Czech glass beads.

Bag dimensions - 32 x 32 x 13 cm
Bag strap - 42 cm
Bag charm - 18cm

The design is 100% my own and approximately 70% of the stiching was done by hand.

Rats, forgot to add- that black piping is a perfect finishing touch.

It needed it. Makes it look 'finished', I feel.

Love! Wish I had the money :( Or even access to fabrics like that. I have a 70s map bag with a clear place for a map that I've been itching to line with map fabric. I got some neat brown stuff, but they mushed all the continents together, I mean, seriously?

BTW, besides the aesthetics, I adore the idea of a travel bag with a built in compass, both awesome and practical!

Sounds like a cool bag and a great idea. I'm sure the right fabric will turn up ;) When I found this fabric it just spoke to me. It WANTED to be a yummy handbag! So I gave it what it wanted (I hope ;) ).

Thank you for the lovely comment!

I think this is utterly stunning, and the price is completely justified - and if I had the money, it would be a real stretch between whether I'd buy it for my other half, or for myself!
Beautiful work! :)
