This printed linen crossbody bag is perfect for carrying your phone, keys and other essentials when you want something smaller than a handbag but bigger than a purse.
Inspired by colourful sunsets and sandy beaches sprinkled with shells, the design was originally painted by Clare Mazitelli with a mixture of watercolours and acrylics creating beautiful painterly textures. The design varies on each side and features a real, vegetable tanned, leather strap and brass hardware. It is fully lined with cotton fabric in a complimentary colour as pictured.
Material: Natural linen/cotton fabric printed in Melbourne, Australia, leather handles made in Melbourne, Australia, brass zip and hardware
Dimensions: 24cm (w) x 20cm, strap: 120cm (adjustable)
