BEAUTIFUL NEW TOTE BAGS
I never cease to admire the Bedouin embroidery, and I actually do not understand how these dresses end up at the flea market. Each time I can buy one makes for a happy day. I wash them and take them apart, and while doing so I think of the women who created them.
The sewing of the dress itself is usually very dilettant, but the embroidery is almost always exquisite. I strive to turn the embroidered pieces I gain from the dresses into something equally beautiful to give them a new, long lasting life. These bags are large and roomy. They have a big zippered pocket with a pretty zipper pull on the back. A pocket, also embellished with embroidery is inside, together with a key swivel, which is so practical. The nice handles are PU leather. The bags close with a magnetic snap.
