Tess of the d'Ubervilles handbag - Thomas Hardy - Bag made from a book

Thomas Hardy's masterpiece, Tess of the d'Ubervilles created quite a stir when it was first published. You are sure to be noticed when you carry this timeless classic now crafted into this lovely Novel Bag.

The evocative cover image is enhanced by the 100% cotton lining fabric of sympathetic colouring and shiny handles made from an upcycled belt. This book was found in a charity store and has been transformed into this enchanting bag.

It measures 22.8 x 15 x 3.4 cm (8.97 x 5.9 x 1.33 in) and has 28 cm long handles. With a reinforced spine and old golden corners protecting the edges, this bag is ready for any occasion. It closes with a simple loop and button.

"She was not an existence, an experience, a passion, a structure of sensations, to anybody but herself. To all humankind besides Tess was only a passing thought. Even to friends she was no more than a frequently passing thought.”
Thomas Hardy
