Electric Flowers Nomadic Bag

ELECTRIC FLOWERS - NOMADIC BAG
(Each Nomadic bag is unique, hand-made from recycled/repurposed textiles of the Nomadic tribes of the Middle East, coupled with thrift-store finds from Hawaii.)
Somewhere in some nomadic village half a world away,
there is a craftsperson with an outrageous sense of color,
and unbelievably precise stitching!
this unique remnant was a part of a quilt, buried away in a corner.
i liberated it, and created this bag around it, to honor the handwork
of that artist across the world...
the lining is also vintage, soft satin, with a black pattern.
the beads came to me thru the years, waiting their turn,
lucky enough to adorn this eclectic sweetie.
the feathery wisps are eyelash trim
the Hawaiians use in their ribbon leis.
it gives a soft, fluttery effect to this vivid bag.
not that it needed more character,
but what the hey...
8" long x 7" wide
strap: 46" long, suitable for wearing across your body
while you dance.
Bag is assembled with button/upholstery thread.
(vintage fabrics, handle with care: hand wash & line dry, or dry clean)
