I hand-print these cotton tote bags with my own artistic and eye-catching design. Perfect for shopping or everyday needs, this fair trade item has strong seams, comfortable handles and is machine washable.
Dimensions: Bag height (not including handles) 42cm, bag width 34cm, bag depth 10cm, handles length 26cm.
The design is my own artwork, carved in soft lino blocks and then printed by hand onto the fabric using machine washable fabric inks. A closer look reveals the tiny carving lines which are signatures marks of traditional lino printing. I love this quality as it gives the product the hand-made feel I am aiming for as opposed to screen-printed textiles which can be processed much more quickly.
In my work as an artist I am inspired by folk art, Scandinavian style and the intricate structures of plants and flowers. These bags are part of a collection of lino-print artwork which I produce at BN14 Studios in West Sussex and sell at Etsy as well as in local independent galleries.
