Mermaids Fold over bag
A beautifully handcrafted leather fold over bag made with an amazing Mermaids print by artist Kieren karritpul of Merrepen Arts.
Kieren is a very talented young Aboriginal artist, his work is collections such as The National Gallery of Australia, Myer Collection and Artbank. I love the colours in this print, and by turning it into a contemporary and beautifully handcrafted foldover bag, it's an artwork that can be worn; and it's very practical for throwing things in through the day.
The bag can be worn either way; the top folds over, and the straps can even be unclipped making a useful clutch bag.
This bag is unique as the fabric is very limited, the quality (hand painted) Italian leather makes it a long-lasting and durable bag.
Adorned with a quality metal zipper and silk-lined.
Hand-cut leather strap and useful inner pocket.
