Red Mermaids Fold-over Bag
I finally got hold of more of this amazing fabric!
A stylish and very limited handmade Fold-over 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 and enjoyed.
The strap is hand-cut leather, with hand painted black leather back. Vintage Chinese silk lining with handy inner pocket.

Adorned with a quality golden YKK metal zipper.
