All of these beautiful handmade batik hand bags are 100% unique, one of a kind, one off creations.
The fabric has been hand dyed by me so is not available to buy anywhere else. Each one started life as a plain white piece of cotton.
I start by space dyeing the fabric to give a random dyed effect. Then I use a tjanting batik tool to draw a design on the fabric in melted wax, once cooled I then dye the fabric a second colour and in some cases repeat this to apply a third colour. The wax acts a resist so the dye will only colour the areas that are not waxed.
When I am happy with the finished design the dye is fixed and the fabric is boiled repeatedly to get all of the wax out and you are left with a beautiful unique piece of fabric.
Each bag has been handmade to my own pattern and they feature a lining made from silk fabric. They all feature two small inner pockets just right for your phone and keys/pen and have a pop stud fastener to hold them closed. The top edge of the bag has been hand stitched to give a nice neat finish.
The distinctive handles are tassels handmade with yarn that have been bound together with wire coils and are nice and strong.
Each bag is approx. 20cm wide and 21cm deep. The depth of the side of the bag is approx. 8cm. They may be a small bags but I am amazed how much they can carry. I have one of these and use it as a handbag every day.
Available in four totally unique designs, once they are gone there will never be another one the same so if you like funky original handbags then these will certainly set you apart from the rest of the world and get a lot of compliments!
This would make a great gift for ladies for any occasion!
