These colourful crochet bags came to life during the first lockdown in Italy, in April 2020. Stephanie was talking every day to her mum on the phone and one day, the idea for a mutual project came up. Stephanie knew that her mother cannot hold her hands still so she asked if she was up to crocheting shopping bags to which Stephanie would add leather handles and her logo, with the initials or name of the receiver. A prototype was made and sent by mail, along with postcards with encouraging messages. Some changes were discussed and colours chosen and production started.
The result is a soft, lightweight shopping bag with reinforcement on the top that will stretch out over time, perfect for the market, the beach or the park.
Made from premium cotton knitting yarn and vegetable tanned leather
Choose your strap colour between Beige, Brown and Black
Straps are 50cm/20" long, but can be made longer
100% hand made
The bags in the pictures are examples for different combinations of leather and yarn colour. Once you ordered a colour, I will get back to you asking for the colour of the strap. Thank you :-)
This is a non-profit product. Each bag takes about 7-10 hours to crochet and two more to be finished with logo and leather handles.
