This crossbody cell phone bag is perfect when you just need the essentials. The front panel was handwoven in the Japanese Sakiori style of weaving and in the tradition “mottainai” or not wasting precious cloth to prolong the fabric’s useful life through recycling and reuse.
The Japanese word sakiori comes from “saki,” which means to tear or rip up, and “ori,” which means weave. “Saki” relates to preparing the fabric by striping it into pieces and “ori” refers to weaving it together.
This way of weaving fits in with my continued effort to maintain a zero waste studio, where I recycle old fabric/yarn remnants to include in my weavings.
DESCRIPTION: Front panel is recycled felted wool and a cotton blend coppery yarn and back is cotton canvas. Lined with cotton including a small interior pocket and an adjustable (up to 53″) leather strap (finished top/natural underside) and a button stud closure. Approximately 6.5″W x 7.75″H.
I hope you will enjoy adding this one-of-a-kind bag to your wardrobe or giving it as a lovely gift.
I do my best to get colors as close as possible, but they do appear slightly brighter on screen and will also vary from screen to screen.
– Spot clean.
