Double zipper purse with two separate compartments sewn in Harris Tweed, fully lined and embroidered with a Highland Cow.
Someone asked me the other day why I didn’t do a double zipper purse – so I did!
I think most of us have a soft spot for ‘Hairy Coos’ and so it’s kind of appropriate I think that this one should be embroidered on Harris Tweed from his homeland! The tweed is a lovely Autumnal shade of chestnut – the pictures do not do it justice.
There is a zip along the top and a separate zip compartment about a third of the way down. Both compartments are fully line with pure cotton in a chestnut coloured pure cotton with gold highlights.
The purse measures 6 inches wide by 5.5 inches high and features two toning zippers in a chestnut tone.
Made entirely by me in my home studio on the Isle of Man.
Of course it packs flat and so would be easy to pop in the post to a friend or loved one as a special gift or simply to say you are thinking of them.
There is only one of these purses available at the moment so grab it while the going’s good!
* There is a postal charge for this item but packing is free as I try and recycle packing materials wherever possible.
As I mentioned, I've got loads of ideas up my sleeve - including bags in totally different fabrics and different shapes and sizes as well as my new line - neckwarmers with matching pins and maybe wristwarmers too! I’ve also got a couple of things to finish off and ultimately list over the next few days - including neck warmers, wrist warmers and a rather nice Laxey Tweed/Loughtan tote bag.
By the way, if you are viewing from the UK you might like to know that everything on my site can be purchased online and shipped to your home address. If you are a Manx resident you can enter the receipient's UK address and I'll send it on for you. I'll even add a note if you would like.
(If you live outside the UK you may wish to contact me first - overseas postage can be prohibitive these days so best to talk about it first.
FOOTNOTE: You may have noticed that most of my items are marked 'one only'.
This is because everything I make is handmade - and handcut - from the bottom up! I make what I love and hope you will too!
