Upcycled Book Club

The Arabian Nights - Upcycled book - Handmade - Handbag made from a book

The glorious tales of Ali Baba, Scheherazade, Sinbad and Aladdin have long filled out minds with luxurious Eastern palaces, mysterious characters and furtive affairs. The Arabian Nights are a collection of Middle Eastern and South Asian stories and folk tales that have captured our imaginations for generations.

Now, this abandoned copy of The Arabian Nights has been re-imagined into this one-of-a-kind bag. It is lined with a sumptuous fabric reminiscent of precious brocades and rich carpets and has glossy black handles made from an upcycled belt. It has gold book corners to protect its edges and closes with a simple loop and a striking golden button.

With a reinforced spine and measuring 21.5 x 14.2 x 3.5 cm (8.4 x 5.5 x 1.3 in) this bag is able to carry a few small personal items. The final flourish of a decorative tassel gives this Novel Bag all the allure of the mysterious Orient and entices you to whisper 'open sesame'...... Such an individual item will enhance any outfit and is sure to draw comment from all your meet.

Upcycled Book Club is situated in Brunswick, Victoria. If you are in the area, convo me about a local pick up and avoid paying shipping costs.

“My story is of such marvel that if it were written with a needle on the corner of an eye, it would yet serve as a lesson to those who seek wisdom.”
