Laxey Tweed Crossbody bag with Loughtan sheep embroidery.
THE LAXEY TWEED LOUGHTAN BAG
This lovely bag is hand woven right here on the Isle of Man at Laxey Woollen Mills. It is remarkably spacious and has a full width zipped pocket on the back, an internal slip pocket, a large slip pocket on the front in contrasting tweed and a little pocket on the front of that (I would use it to stash my parking ticket – pesky things!).
It is fully lined with 100% cotton and measures 21 x 15 cm (8 ¼ x 6”).
The long, brown faux leather strap is adjustable so it can be used as a crossbody bag or a shoulder bag. The strap is also detachable so the bag can be used as a packing pouch when you are on your travels.
Ideal for when you need to carry a little bit more than your phone but a little bit less than a full size bag. Some folk I know favour this size for use when dog walking – Laxey tweed is remarkably rugged. Ideal size for your Kindle too!
To top it all it is finished with a Loughtan Sheep embroidery design and the two leather zipper tabs feature a decorative antique brass effect heart rivet.
The colour is a lovely muted brown (Loughtan colour!) and the contrast pockets complement it perfectly. The colour of the strap is picked up in the side strap attachments and also in the cute zipper tabs which all add to the feeling of Autumn to me.
It is softly padded but also unstructured so can be packed and sent through the post to a loved one (if you can REALLY part with it!)
All made by me in my home studio right here on the beautiful Isle of Man.
When you go to the checkout you will see two options:
1. Click and Collect which means you can pick it up from me at almost any time you like.
2. Vendor shipping which means you will pay for it to be posted to you.
By the way – although I charge for post – I don’t charge for packing as I try and use recycled packing materials wherever possible.
I’M BAAAAAAACK!Well, August may have started off in a rather crummy way - weatherwise here on the Isle of Man - but I'm confident there are lots more sunny, happy days ahead! With this in mind, I'm thinking of bags and purses that you can carry with you to parties, weddings, the beach etc etc and so you will find some of these "Summer Specials" listed with a few more to come. I'm also pondering a Summer Special Sale.... to run for August. So check those out - along with my latest products. Whatever you are doing this month - have a happy, happy time!
