Bags

Who doesn´t love a bag! Contact me to purchase these one of a kind shoulder bags or click on the image to buy from my Shop in Ireland store.

These bags are all handmade and are mostly inspired by the embroidered wraps worn by women in the desert regions of Morocco. Tahrouyt, as the Amazigh people call them, are usually black with neon coloured wool, metal sequins and tassels. They embroider symbols which depict scenes from their life, they could represent the valley where they live for example, the sun, moon, palm trees, rivers and other topical subjects. I have taken this idea and designed and created my crossbody shoulder bags to celebrate the work these Amazigh tribal women do. The materials were all purchased from the same shops in Morocco that they use. The handles are an integral part of the bag, making them very strong. They are large enough to fit an A4 side notepad and much more.

For this bag, I had the idea to use the ancient art of henna as the main design element. Henna is considered a way of protecting the wearer among other uses. Tassels are widely used in Moroccan textiles and I thought they would perfectly complement my henna design. This bag is fully lined and interlined with canvas for added strength. Dimensions 33 x 37 cm with a strap of 108cm. Price. sold
