UNION – handmade handbag

union shoulderbag

Handbag featuring my textile design called UNION

UNION because the triangles pointing up and pointing down are ancient symbols for male and female, sun and moon, yoni and lingam, water and fire…and therefor UNION

I used leftover cotton fabrics and up cycled them by using the techniques of Batik, hand quilting, the Italian handwork technique Trapunto, the Japanese technique Sashiko and hand painting with eco friendly water based textile ink for the strap.
For the quilting it is padded with cotton as well.

Size is approx. 37 x 24 x 5 cm so it is big enough to store all your personal belongings that you need to carry with you on a daily basis.

This is a one-off!

Go to my Etsy shop for more pictures and details. Thanks!
