Those of you who are regular readers of this journal, will know I have long been in love with Marimekko, the Finnish design house. I purchased some of their coated cotton last spring and have begun now to make bags. This print called Siirtolapuutarh, makes a stunning tote. This is the large size, 18″ x 14″ x 5″, with a strong metal zipper, and reinforced black leather bottom and carry straps. It is lined with black waxed canvas and has a special large pocket for your 15″ laptop which fastens with a silver knob closure (see the last photo). The tote also has a leather phone pocket and a large canvas slip pocket printed with birdbrain graphics. I have enough fabric in this design to make a couple of cross-body bags and two more totes. This one is currently in the online store. It would make colourful statement as a great weekend travel tote.
I definitely want one of these !!! Can you send me the fabrics that you have and I would like a tote not a cross body bag.
HUGE Marimekko fan as well.
These are awesome!!! The fabric with the handles and bases are perfection!
It’s really cool how it has a different colour/pattern on each side.
Je suis aussi une amoureuse de Marimekko, je veux un sac!!!! ils sont telllllllement beau! Je vois qu’ils sont “sold out” comment je fais pour m’en procurer?
