Jade and Blossom
Spring/Summer 2012
Jade and Blossom is a total of 6 bags created from a found blanket spread that looks like it came straight out of a 1970´s camping trip to the a cabin in the woods, or it could have been in a 1970´s Volkswagon that is blasting Don McLean.

There will be 3 different designs and I only have enough textile to create 2 bags of each design. The bags are lined with different blossom patterned fabric and they have a ton of great pockets & key fobs. The straps and details are made this with a found muted aqua leather.  This leather was an upholstery sample that I purchased at a little antique store in Atoka, Oklahoma.

A large spacious ¨bucket¨ style tote bag with drawstring pulls. Wear it with the drawstring pulled, or not. Comes with a detachable shoulder strap made from a found leather belt. I used a found soft muted aqua blue leather for the carry straps and the strap latch. The lining is a brightly bold and colorful blossom cotton. Exceptional pockets for all your organization.

Depending on what you´re carrying that day and where you are going, you have the choice to wear this in two ways
1. Join the detachable shoulder strap to the leather latch to create a hobo style bag that rests on the hips.
2. Detach the shoulder strap. You can stow the strap in the zippered part inside the bag, or keep it at a safe place at home. Carry the bag by the leather straps off the top for a tote bag look.

The tote bag is perfect to stow away your every day items. It's also the perfect size for a student's lighter day at school. This features a found muted aqua blue leather for the two centered strap handles and the front scalloped pocket. The straps are detailed with box-top stitching and embellished with silver cone studs at the edge. These bags close with a dusty blue zipper.It´s not just the outside of the bag that is exciting. The inside is fully lined in a cheerful gold blossom cotton lining and features helpful pockets.
