A handmade calico / canvas tote bag, featuring a hand printed bold abstract leaf print design in black. Designed and made in Melbourne, Australia.
The bag is handmade from heavy weight natural calico (canvas) fabric.
Decorated using handmade woodblock prints, using Speedball Fabric Block Printing Ink.
The print pattern is on one side of the bag.
The wood printing blocks are fabricated on a laser cutter from my original designs.
There is a photo of the actual woodblock I used for this bag in the listing images, but please note: the wood block is not included with the bag.
40cm wide x 40cm tall, with a 10cm gusset.
Each handle is 60cm in total length.
Preferably don’t wash, just sponge any stains.
I have done a gentle hand wash test, and as expected the calico shrinks a little. Whilst the Speedball printing ink is washable, on my test sample I found the ink print faded slightly.
Pattern name: Five Leaves
The charm of hand printed items means that every print is unique, the appearance of each impression in a print run can vary slightly, therefore the bag you receive may look a little different from the images above.
