A Handmade item
Made in Australia
by Upcycled Book Club
* All Madeit sellers are based in Australia and goods are shipped from Australia.

This utterly unique Novel Bag is made from a pre-loved copy of Peter Carey's True History of the Kelly Gang. Published in 2000, it is work of fiction but is written as an autobiography and thus is narrated by the notorious bushranger, Ned Kelly. It won both the Booker Prize and the Commonwealth Writer's Prize in 2001.

This beautiful edition was found in the local charity shop and has been upcycled into this one-of-a-kind Novel Bag. It is lined with a 100% cotton fabric, has handles made from an upcycled belt and closes with a feature button and an elasticised loop. With a reinforced spine and measuring 23.5 x 15 x 4.3 cm (9.25 x 5.9 x 1.69 in) it can carry a few small personal items and is a gorgeous accessory to any outfit. T

This beautiful handbag is the perfect gift for the lover of Australian literature or Australian history.

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.
