Market Bag: Details of a Vintage Beaded Bag


A modern handmade bag printed with the exquisite details of a vintage 1920s handmade bag and inspired by the simple rectangular shape of woven bags with braided handles that were popular in the 1970s.

The intricate beaded design printed on the bag fabric is from a digitized image of a circa 1920s handbag from the collection of the Rijksmuseum. It shows enlarged details of the vintage bag's pattern of beaded multicolored flowers. The original bag was shaped like a pouch with a tassel on the bottom -- I've added tassel details on one side and a portion of the handle on the other side.

Wear it cross body or knot the handle and wear it over your shoulder.
