Vintage Kantha Tote Bag - Patchwork
Genuine vintage textiles meet functional style, and the result is a one-of-a-kind stylish and beautiful large tote bag, handmade from vintage Indian kantha work.
These functional tote bags are designed for everyday use. Large enough and strong enough to carry everything you need for work or play. Lined in natural calico, each bag has an internal zip pocket, and also a pouch for your phone or sunglasses.
Handmade in India especially for Small Acorns from kanthas personally selected by Amanda.
Reinforced large eyelet rings and a leather handle. Magnetic closure. No two bags are exactly the same.
Approximate size - 460mm wide x 340mm tall x 230mm depth (at the base of the bag)
The word 'kantha' refers to a type of running stitch embroidery, which was traditionally used to stitch several layers of cotton together to make a quilt or bedcover or cushion. Often the layers were repurposed saris. Vintage kanthas are beautifully soft and often have small imperfections or patches where they have been mended. Each one is unique and this only adds to their charm.
