Zippered




A vintage zipper, these stripes, and the usual recipe of  leather and linen...
M.'s favorite bag so far, she says.

If only I could find where to have my own tags printed at a reasonable price - the iron-on transfers on twill tape are a bit disappointing... Suggestions anyone for cotton twill tape printed tags?

I had my labels made here http://www.clothinglabels4u.com/ I am very pleased with them and she was very nice to work with. She knows her stuff and directed me towards what would work the best for me. Good luck with your labels and I love your bags!

zéér mooi, echt geslaagd, verzorgd in alle details! idd,je zou iets moeten vinden, zodat je direct weet; dit is een //BTL// bag!

you have such a wonderful sense of proportion, and color - i love this!

you really pare a bag down to its essence, and then tuck in a surprise of color and/or detail.

wonder what you would do with a building, if you were an architect?

I like having the zipper on the outside. Very chic.

As always a lovely bag.

You know I think I have to agree with M - this is my favourite too!

I love the chocolate brown leather, the stripes and the bright vintage zipper, and of course the lovely linen. This is beautiful!

I am interested to see what recommendations you get for labels. I have been looking for twill tape labels on etsy and none of them look quite right to me. I did just order some labels from here (http://www.etsy.com/listing/44901759/custom-clothing-or-purse-labels-for-your) and I'll let you know how they look once they arrive in the mail.

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful bags

I have the same issue re labels - iron-on just aren't quite as chic as Cath Kidston's embroidered ones... Let us know how you get on with finding some. Your bag is just lovely - the stripy linen is delish. xox

the bag is lovely and you should have lovely labels to go with all of your creations. this site was mentioned on martha stewart and i love their labels, especially the woven ones -

i also think alicia paulson uses them, but not sure if the labels are considered reasonable priced, but you can order smallish quantities.
