Mermaids Indigenous Print and Leather Shoulder Bag - Large
A stylish and very limited handmade shoulder bag with a vibrant hand screen print artwork by Aboriginal artist Kieren Karritpul of Merrepen Arts. The fabric was hand screen-printed by Publisher Textiles in Leichhardt.
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 shoulder bag, it's an artwork that can be worn; the larger size makes it very practical for throwing things in through the day.
The strap is hand-cut leather, with tan brown leather back and top-stitched detail. Midnight blue silk lining with handy inner pocket. The strap can unclip, transforming it into a clutch.
Adorned with a quality rust coloured Riri metal zipper.
Size: 29cm x 22cm
All bags are scotch-guarded.
