Vintage Kamala Tote Bag
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 embroidery, kantha and mirrorwork.
These functional tote bags are designed for everyday use. Large enough and strong enough to carry everything you need for work or play.
Handmade in India especially for Small Acorns. No two bags are the same, but all are made from patches of similar vintage textiles. Decorative tassels add to their uniqueness.
Approximate size - 500mm wide x 300mm tall x 100mm gusset (at the base of the bag). Lined in black cotton. Two shoulder straps and internal cellphone pocket and zip pocket. Magnetic closure.
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 textiles 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.
