Dragonfly Summer Bag
A new scientific report suggests climate change is unfortunately killing off a lot of insect species, but here’s a new one of my own - the giant gold and silver dragonfly. And it adorns my latest bag made of eco-friendly Black Shine Washpapa.
This is no ordinary dragonfly, with Swarovski crystals and Czech glass beads, each lovingly hand-stitched, sparkling richly in the sunshine as it spreads its wings and stretches its body.
The dragonfly, the design for which I found in a book called “Papercut Woodland”, was painstakingly hand cut from Gold Shine and Silver Antique Washpapa.
It is all elegantly finished off with tortoiseshell (vegan-friendly, of course) acrylic handles.
Whether you want to glide down the catwalk or swoop down the high street, this stunning bag will give you wings, to quote someone else’s catchphrase!
*Washpapa is manufactured in the EU and known as a washable paper. It is a waterproof mix of paper and latex. The paper is Oeko-Tex certified and a Forest Stewardship Council (SCS) for wood product.
Approx.: 60cm x 38cm x11cm
