Aslaug Zip Pouch


Block printed Essex linen with sashiko stitching as well as hand-sewn wool and vintage kimono scrap details. Pouch has a brass zipper with leather zipper pull, and is lined with Cotton + Steel fabric. 

The block printed image is on the front of the bag; the back is plain Essex linen. See photos for clarification. 

Dimensions: 9" x 5.5"

The fabric used in my work is block printed and stitched by hand. I start by drawing a design, then carving it into a block. To print the fabric, the block is inked again and again and pressed onto the fabric. Once dried and heat set, I stitch the fabric—by hand to embroider it and/or with a machine to create sewn goods.

Variations are inherent to the handmade process, and through them one can see the hand work involved in creating this item.
