It’s been a while since my last blog post, but I had to take time out for some DIY - ooer! However, I hope that the photo of our hallway proves my creativity knows no bounds!
My chosen colour, woodland pearl, is very similar to “kale”, one of Pantone’s shades of 2017 - not only appropriate for us vegans but shows we can be trendy too.
From walls in forest colours, we move back to the urban environment for my latest venture into making ethical fashion accessories.
Want to be a city slicker, a man/woman about town? Why not take the city with you with this large colourful orange, light blue, black and white handbag.
It’s perfectly suited to storing A4-size notebooks while also looking chic whether you are dining in an upmarket city centre eaterie or the Ikea canteen.
The latter would be particularly appropriate considering that’s where I found this distinctive heavyweight renewable cotton cartoon cityscape, called Gitte.
Open it up and you will be greeted with summery yellow lining with white polka dots, complete with pockets to keep your mobile and other valuables handy.
To help keep it resistant from the rigours of a cosmopolitan lifestyle, the bottom corners are reinforced with black Washpapa and the base with metal bag feet.
Washpapa is the vegan-friendly pleather made of a combination of paper and latex I have been using in my latest bags. The ethical theme is enhanced by Ikea supporting the Better Cotton Initiative.
What else can I tell you about this bag? Oh yes - it has black handles and foam between the outside and the lining to keep it nice and firm.
I hope this unique bag has you buzzing like the city life that inspired the design.
Bag is available here.
