Red Mermaids Indigenous Print and Leather Shoulder Bag - Large
The amazing Mermaids screen print now in an orange/red!
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 grey leather back and top-stitched detail. Gold silk lining with handy inner pocket.
X Placement of print may alter a little, though I try to get it as close as possible. X
Adorned with a quality golden YKK metal zipper.
Size: 29cm x 22cm
