Handmade from densely woven 100% thick chunky soft natural premium jute fibres, this extra large French Provincial Boho style crossbody handbag is perfect for market days, beach holidays, or those Coachella type festival events.
Please note that this is a one-off design made from a super chunky natural jute that is 5-6mm thick. I only use natural fibres that are completely free from chemicals, sustainable, environmentally sensitive, ethically sourced and made by a Fair Trade Enterprise.
Jute is a tough natural fibre that is valued for its strength, durability, ability to stretch, and resistance to deterioration in saltwater. It has a light natural straw colouring. It is resistant, supple, flexible and beautifully soft. With use, the bag begins to take on a softer, gentler and slouchier appearance.
Being a natural fibre, jute has a subtle aroma of straw and tiny loose fibres that flake off. The fibre has different width, thickness and is naturally uneven. Therefore no 2 bags are ever the same and each one is unique.
This bag comes with medium taupe coloured vegan leather handles which you can unknot, readjust or remove. It can be used as a handbag or a crossbody bag. Alternatively, try substituting or accessorising with a scarf for that romantic Parisian style.
This extra large bag is made from over 100m of premium chunky natural jute and measures 42cm (16.5") in width. The height of the bag from the highest point to the bottom of the bag is 31cm (12"). The bag is 6cm (2.5") thick. The leather handles measures 24cm (9.5") from the highest point to the top of the opening of the bag.
Being an organic natural fibre, the bag will stretch and soften with time, taking on a slouchier look. Like a favourite old pair of jeans, it's shape improves with age.
If the tote gets wet, allow it to air dry naturally. Jute can be placed in direct sunlight to dry. Please do not place bag in the washing machine or dryer.
I began making these for myself because I fell in love with the minimalist straw bags that the French women used on market days. Living in Brisbane where we average 261 days of sunshine and blue skies per year, I love how my easy carry-all matches so effortlessly with my uniform of summer dresses and straw hats.
