Dalahäst, Wycinanki and Washpapa meet
Don’t ask me why, but I have a thing for Dalahäst horses.
They only became a thing back in the 1930s, but the carved wooden toys from the Dalarna region of Sweden soon became a symbol of the nation.
I can see why, because they are strong, simple but striking - a classic piece of distinctive design.
Dalahäst horses are normally mainly red, but for my latest bag, I have switched it round so mine is in green Washpapa on a red polyester felt background.
The crossover messenger bag is a fusion of strong colour.
It is bordered with red pompoms and has a tail-like tassel, again in green Washpapa.
Holding it by your side is a long groovy woven multi-coloured strap.
And open up the rainbow zip and you will find a floral print inspired by Wycinanki, Polish paper cut art, on a black background.
There’s a handy pocket on either side for your mobile, tickets, or other items.
