When I was in France with my friend Anne last fall, we bought some wonderful basque canvas in Chartres. I found one last piece in my bins of fabric, enough to make one final tote. I love the bright colours, especially combined with the beautiful red leather on the bottom, straps and pocket. This is a good size, 16″wide, 15″ tall and 5″ deep, and is lined with canoe canvas, so it is sturdy enough to carry many things. Inside there is a triple canvas pocket and it closes securely with a metal zipper. Great for travel or for using every day. A flash of the colours of the south of France.
