A Handmade item
Made in Australia

* All Madeit sellers are based in Australia and goods are shipped from Australia.

This tote bag has been created from panels of Boro Sashiko style embroidery, formed from recycled scraps of denim jeans (you can see the pockets), vintage men's shirts, Shibori scraps and craft cottons. I hand stitched patterns of swirling circles, mathematical planes and intersecting lines in Sashiko threads to create intricate and interesting surfaces that a reminiscent of a starry sky. I have named this tote 'Stargazer'.

The bag is fully lined in a panel of craft cotton and features a pocket from jeans repurposed as an inside pocket for holding keys, phones and more. The handles are panels of jeans denim reinforced with interfacing. The tote measures 42cm long by 32cm wide with 66cm handles. The bag base is "boxed" for better use.

I love the texture and feel of Boro panels and I wish I could share this with you. The panels have been fully hand stitched, then washed, sun-dried and ironed and have a slightly corrugated feel. the surface pattern I have created is unique. The colours are denim blue, tie dyed denim, yellow flanelette, checks, indigo Shibori, rust red craft cotton, and the stitchery is worked in white, deep blue and gold.

This is a one of a kind piece designed for long service. I recommend hand washing in wool mix, line drying and ironing under a cloth.
