Navy blue Harris Tweed slimline crossbody bag with embroidered Loughtan sheep in Shocking Pink.
There’s not always a need to carry a large bag around with us – when we are out shopping for example or at a party. This lovely soft, unstructured bag – which can be used as a shoulder bag or a crossbody – is the perfect size to put your phone, cards and other essentials in when you are out and about.
It’s made from navy blue Harris Tweed and embroidered with our native rare breed sheep here on the Isle of Man – the Loughtan. (Although I have to say they are not usually pink!)
It measures approximately 9 inches (23 cms) high by 8 inches (20 cms) wide and is lined with 100% cotton in a toning blue floral pattern. (Except for the bright pink contrast in the front pocket!)
It closes by means of a simple magnetic closure on the flap which also secures the slip pocket on the front (ideal to put your parking ticket) and the contents (there’s another slip pocket inside too for cards, receipts etc)
The strap (made by me) is adjustable and is made of leather with matching webbing reinforcement on the back (a trick I pinched from a well-known bag designer!) This means it is extra strong and does not stretch. It is around 60 inches long and features two little silver tone heart shaped rivets.
It is a bit of an inter-Island collaboration really as it was made by me here on the Isle of Man from world famous Harris Tweed woven by a weaver on the Isle of Lewis.
WHAT'S NEW AT CINNAMON EMBROIDERY -
And - suddenly - it's April and I am turning my thoughts to more Spring-like items.First of these is the key fob/coin purse. These are all made from soft Italian leather, embroidered and adorned with either a tassel or a Tibetan silver charm. They come tissue wrapped and in a Cinnamon gift box. Latest editions are a bee flying among the flowers and a jolly Puffin on scarlet leather. They are all different and are proving very popular! My next new item is the Amplector Bag. This slimline crossbody is designed to fit closely to the contours of your body making it ideal to use for those quick trips out. My first is in indigo denim and purple patterned cotton but I already have some others on my cutting table - including one in floral Portuguese cork and one in a fab linen-look bee fabric. I have no doubt there will be more. ********************************************************** Don't forget if you are on the Isle of Man and buy something from my store when you get to checkout you will see that the postal charge is £3 for items delivered within the Island.
