Kari Tote


This canvas bag will be your new favorite tote -- not too bulky, but sized generously for when you need to carry a load. The canvas is not overly stiff and drapes nicely again your side when you need to only carry a couple items. 

Available in Two Patchwork Variations:

  • Block Prints & Japanese Fabric (left side of 1st photo)
  • Block Prints (right side of 1st photo)

The pattern motif is block printed on Essex linen/cotton, stitched together as patchwork, then embellished by hand with embroidery. The leather handles are fastened with antique brass rivets. The block printed image is on the front of the bag; the back is plain canvas. 

Bag Dimensions: 13"h x 15"w x 6"d 

Handle drop: 13"

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.
