For those who remember the 70s with a fondness for cheesecloth and embroidery, for the aging hippy, the nouveau hippy or just those who appreciate authentic tribal textiles: this is the real deal!

The ladies of western Gujarat, India, have a long tradition of embellishing their clothes with fine stitchery and mirror work. After the costume is no longer usable, the textiles are still valued and made into these great little bags.

Like the lines on an old face, any 'flaws' or mends in the fabric are a testament to and a celebration of its age.

Cowrie shells form tassels at the four corners of the kantha stitched base of this classy little drawstring bag made from recycled tribal textiles.It measures 30.5cm high and 32cm wide laid flat with a square inset base.

We only have a small supply of these reincarnated bags and each is unique, so if you can't resist the celebration of decoration and the marks of the hands that made them, hurry to the checkout before they are all gone.

Being hand made, there may be minor variations in colour and design.
We take great care in photographing our products, but please be aware that minor differences in colour may occur between our camera and your monitor.
