The Amplector Bag – (Amplector – Latin for embrace, hug, entwine, clasp) is the latest addition to my range of slimline, crossbody bags.
This one is made in indigo denim with a front slip pocket in 100% cotton (matching the lining).
As well as a wide slip pocket on the front it also has a slip pocket inside which effectively divides the bag in two as it runs the whole width of the bag. The top of the bag is secured by a zip fastener to keep all your stuff secure.
The adjustable strap is made from soft yet sturdy purple cotton webbing – the colour purple being echoed in the top stitching on the bag.
Its slimline contours mean it fits closely to the body keeping your essentials safe and secure.
Its the ideal bag to take with you on a quick shopping trip or even on your daily walk. There’s plenty of room in here for your phone, your Kindle and other essentials.
It measures approximately 11.25 inches x 8 inches (28.5cms x 20cm)
As a finishing touch I have made a double sided denim/cotton tassel which will hopefully fray more with use giving it a rustic charm.
Made right here – entirely by me in my home studio – on the beautiful Isle of Man!
There is only one of these in this colourway.
Remember – if you are on the Isle of Man (or sending to an address on the Isle of Man) for just £3 this bag can be delivered right to your door by courier.
Blazing June - and it's warm, sunny and wonderful here on the beautiful Isle of Man! We are bang in the middle of TT and the wonderful atmosphere and joy that it brings. I think it's worth mentioning therefore that if you see anything on this site that you would love to take home with you, bear in mind that it can be posted to your UK address so it will be waiting for you when you get back.
Last month I introduced the stunning new Star range of bags, purses and pouches by Cinnamon Embroidery which featured leather applique on canvas on a variety of bags and pouches. Inspired by this I've decided to make a smaller series of Western-style bags and pouches featuring embroidered leather applique on recycled denim. The first of these is shown above but I hope there will be more to follow.
I have to say I love the fact that I'm using recycled and upcycled fabrics and love, love, love working with leather and denim.
**************************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 recipient'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!
