Handmade Embroidered Crossbody Bag
This sturdy durable hand embroidered black bag is useful and big enough for all your daily essentials. The strap is long so it can be cross-body or hung over your shoulder.
Due to the handmade nature of this item the embroidery colours and designs may vary slightly.
This bag is called Draa.
This crossbody bag is handmade using poly cotton gabardine fabric for the outer layer with a black poly cotton lining and a preshrunk canvas interlining for added body and strength. The wool is acrylic and comes in a range of colours; some are neon, which is part of the tradition. Metal beads and sequins are added for extra bling and aesthetics. Tassels are synonymous with Moroccan textiles and they feature on my designs too.
Dimensions; 32 x 38 x 5 x 120 cms strap. (12.5 x 15 x 2 x 47 inches) Total length therefore is 98 cms (38.5 inches). The strap runs the full length of the bag, giving extra strength.
Care Instruction; Sponge any stains or marks with luke warm water. Dry out of direct sunlight. Press with a medium hot iron using a towel on the embroidered side. Do not use an iron directly on the embroidery.
My boho bags are the perfect for for everyday essentials, they can also comfortably fit a water bottle, book, A4 size notebook or folder and the shoulder strap is comfortable and secure as it is made in a continuous piece all the way down the sides. These black shoulder bags are fully lined and are one of a kind.
These colourful and unique handmade bags are inspired by the Tahrouyt embroidered wraps made by the indigenous Amazigh women in the Sahara villages of southern Morocco. Neon coloured wool is used alongside metal beads and sequins to depict tribal identities and desert life. I purchased all the materials in Morocco, so they are the same ones used by the women.
Draa is the longest valley in Morocco which eventually disappears into the sahara sands.
