Patchwork + Sashiko Denim Tote 3
This bag is truly a labor of love! It's one-of-a-kind and filled with a ton of unique, handmade details from the denim patchwork, free form sashiko stitching, hand stitched pocket, and hand constructed straps. Check out the detailed sewn patching on this tote on the reverse panel- little stars to reinforce what was once a hem. The pocket features one of my favorite sashiko patterns, too!
The outer bag is made from thick, heavyweight denim with no stretch. The lining is a lightweight denim with an interior pocket. Designed for everyday use this unisex tote can be used as a carry-all, fancy grocery bag, travel or everyday bag. It can take the wear and tear!
Plus, I'm offering free repairs. My goal with the use of repurposed materials is to reduce textile waste, so I'll honor that by helping to repair your tote. Just mail it back to me & I'll patch it up.
