This bag is constructed of 100% cotton rope, coiled by hand and sewn by machine. The dark moss green thread used is 100% polyester, for durability. It can be spot cleaned with water and soap (air dry).
The integral handles are short (it is more of a handbag than a tote) and it comes with a small loop that can be used as a yarn holder or a spot to clip a set of keys.
The process of making these bags is not unlike the throwing of a clay pot - it takes shape as you go and the final product is a little bit uneven and wobbly. (This is what gives it its charm, I think.) The thread work is intended to have a "sketchy" appearance - if you are looking for perfect, even stitches, you will not find it here.
Size: approx. 9" tall x 12" long x 7" wide (the bag gets wider at the top and has a slightly rounded bottom, so measuring is a little bit tricky)
In order to keep shipping costs reasonable, this item will be compressed as small as possible but will regain its volume and shape once removed from the packaging.
