New in my web store is the Sonya Bag which I worked on for over 12 months.
This stunning bag has been lovingly created by moi, Ellie, using a collection of vintage fabrics from France, vintage glass buttons and hand stitch techniques. The stitching technique used to create this bag is the Japanese Boro stitch. The term “boro” comes from the words “boroboro” meaning something tattered or repaired. Historically, as hemp was more widely available in Japan than cotton, the two kinds of fabrics were woven together for warmth, birthing the term “boro” as one type of fabric was often used to repair the other.
Japanese Boro stitch is quite popular now and refers to when different kinds of fabrics are used to create patches on items. A beautiful classic palette of blues and natural fabrics are held together by the traditional Japanese Boro stitch in details of red, blue and white. The Sonya Bag also features a strong, wide linen woven strap so the bag is comfortable to wear.
The Sonya Bag is the perfect oversized style to use for your shopping, to take to the beach or even as a unique stylish baby bag for all those essentials. With two pockets inside to keep your phone, wallet and keys organised, the Sonya Bag is sure to become your favourite multi-use bag.
