Vintage Floral Handbag

Side viewTop View

I’ve created my most complex handbag style yet! This handbag has two interior pouches as well as a zipped pocket, 7 external pockets (6 along the longer sides created by the straps and one attched to the shorter side), a reinforced base with feet studs and a zip closure. I used 100% cotton floral fabics for the sides and lining, corderoy for the base and raw silk for the handles.

South Africa is referred to as the ‘rainbow nation’ and this has infiltrated our design and colour choice. Vibrancy seen in the African landscape is mirrored in all of our bags making them a proudly South African product.
