Faded Brown Stripe One Day In Provence Bag
Oh no! This one has sold. Don't wait if you've got your eye on anything because when they're gone they're gone.
These vintage grain sacks we use are between 30 and 100 years old but despite their age the more you wash them the softer and more loveable they get! Each sack has a series of stripes in a variety of colours which was used as a coding system as to which sacks belonged to which farmer, how cool is that?!
On the inside there is a sturdy lobster keyring to keep your keys safe and a privacy purse made with vintage french fabric. We have lined this beauty with a gorgeous rose patterned canvas cotton and paired it with our signature hand bent bamboo handles but you are welcome to change them for any on our 'Handles' page, just leave us a note at checkout.
The vintage sack that has been used to make your beautiful bag is made out of hemp. These were instrumental in getting farmers sugar, flour and grain to the mill, many families stripes and monograms were stitched or stencilled onto the fabric ensuring the sacks were returned to their rightful owner.
We hope you enjoy carrying your own little piece of history !!!
Dimensions: H 55 cms (
from top of the handles to bottom) x W 40cms.
