A Handmade item
Made in Australia

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

The centre panel leather has been hand painted, and matched with a pink leather on the sides. The painted hide was originally a neutral grey kangaroo leather made in South East Queensland, and the tanning process didn’t quite go to plan. Then I’ve then hand applied a leather dye, leather paint and a top coat. There are some areas where the dye has soaked into the base leather, and other areas have a splatter or drip finish. The leather itself has a lot of texture in the leather and variation in the finish. The solid pink on the sides is a pink nappa kangaroo leather with a grain finish.

The Admiral Grace Tote design was named after Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, a pioneering computer scientist.

The lining is 100% cotton, with a slip pocket on one side, and a zipper pocket to secure all your essentials on the other. The zipper pull is a pastel rainbow. The straps are also fabric.

Strap length from top of the metal ring to the other ring is approximately 65cm
Strap drop - top of strap to top of bag is approximately 35cm

Bag is 42cm wide at the top and 29cm wide at the base
Bag is 26cm deep at the centre and approximately 27 tall at the side seams measuring straight down)

Because of the hand applied finish on the centre panel, this hide is more delicate than a traditional factory finished leather and should be treated like a suede.

The leather is made in Australia, and the cotton lining fabric was sourced from an Australian business, and designed by another Brisbane artist. Bags are designed and made in my MEW Designs Studio (also known as a laboratory) in Brisbane Australia.
