This sturdy bag is block printed by hand, then embroidered on heavy, natural linen. The bag is fully lined with Cotton + Steel canvas, and has three internal pockets. The leather strap adjusts with a solid brass buckle and is fastened with solid brass hardware.
The block printed and stitched image is on the front of the bag; the back is solid linen.

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.
