A Handmade item
Made in Australia
by BK Bell Designs
* All Madeit sellers are based in Australia and goods are shipped from Australia.

This is a slouchy hobo-style of bag, made in deep navy cork with navy/bronze art deco fabric. There is a subtle shimmer to the fabric, elevating this from an everyday bag to something really unique and special. It has a zipper closure, inner slip pockets, and adjustable strap.

Materials:
Cork leather
Cotton wrap scrap

What is cork leather?
Cork leather is a renewable and sustainable fabric made from the bark of cork trees. The bark is harvested every 9 years, without killing the tree, meaning it is renewable and environmentally friendly. It is a vegan alternative to traditional leather, with many of the same properties as leather - soft, durable and strong.
It is also treated to be water resistant, can be wiped clean with a damp cloth.

What is wrap scrap?
"Wrap scrap" is woven fabric originally made for baby carriers. They are usually "jacquard" fabrics, meaning the design is woven in different coloured threads, rather than having a design printed onto a length of fabric. I use the offcuts from the manufacturing process, and sometimes repurposed wraps, in the manufacture of my bags.
Woven wrap fabric is designed to be highly durable, and is made from premium textiles - usually cotton, linen, tencel, bamboo or silk. It is thicker and more sturdy than apparel or quilting fabrics, closer to the fabric you would use for upholstery. The durability of the fabric makes it highly suitable for bag making.
Woven wraps are a luxury textile; made in limited release numbers and beautiful designs. Wrap scrap is not only attractive and unique fabric, it is also a way of saving production waste and recycling fabric which would otherwise be thrown away.

We recommend spot cleaning your bag if needed, or gently hand washing if it is highly soiled. Machine washing is not recommended.
