British Woven Market ShopperRegular price $46.00
This woven shopper/tote is made from used cement sacks, an eco bag that is as stylish as it is practical. Empty cement sacks from the construction industry are collected, washed and shredded. The shredded material is then spun into thread, re-dyed & woven into these wonderful totes. These are bags made from bags!
A generous 15.7'' x 17.32 '' with a 3.5 '' gusset, perfect for loading up at the Farmers Market or when shopping local.
Sturdy webbing handles with a lined webbing top, complete with a magnetic closure ensure the bag is durable & secure.
Topped off by an embroidered 'British Colour Standard' label
British Colour Standard was revived by art and design duo Jackie and Victoria, after they found an old color dictionary in a charity shop. The pair brought the hues found hidden in the book’s pages back to life. The British Colour Council (BCC) was an industry standards organization, active from the 1930s to the 1950s, which produced indexes of named colors for use by government, industry, academia, and horticulture.
Woven Tote Care: Wipe Clean. The striped material is water resistant but if lots of water gets onto the outer surface, some colour transfer may ocurr. *We tested it out in the shop, by putting a muslim cloth inside, soaked the bag and let it all sit - there was some light color transfer.
