Half Moon Linen Purse : Nettles
A lovely zipped bag made in natural linen, hand screen printed with Jenny Sibthorp's Nettles design in green fabric ink and lined in natural calico. Perfect for the gardening fanatic or perhaps someone with a penchant for our prickly friends...
Inspired by one of nature’s most practical pests, Jenny decided to design a Nettles print shortly after making some Nettles Wine. She was struck by the beauty and practicality of what some deem as a useless weed, and wanted to translate this into a design that emphasized the beauty of nature in its simplest form. Turning the everyday commonplace object into something with an aesthetic quality is something Jenny feels strongly about.
This zipped purse is an excellent and unusual shape, fitting nicely into the palm of your hand or into a hand bag to safe-keep your loose change, cards and phone, or maybe even your make up. I know I can't get enough of small bags like this to hold various bits n bobs.
Each purse is fastened using a 18cm (7") Brass YKK Zip in Green with a suede leather pull, has a leather logo tab sewn into the right seam and a woven name label sewn into the calico lining. It measures 13 x 18 cm.
This zipped half moon purse would be a great every day accessory for yourself or as a gift, and would compliment our range of products in Nettles beautifully.
