This unique item is made from a one-of-a-kind, hand-dyed piece of organic cotton fabric. I paint each piece of fabric with sun-light reactive dye and arrange ferns, leave and flowers on the fabric to make stunning natural designs. The piece is moved into the sunlight with a piece of clear glass on top to keep the plants flat and the design crisp. As soon as I step outside into the UV light, the exposed dye begins to activate. It is left in the sun for 10-15 minutes. The botanicals act as a resist and the dye below is not activated, creating the design. I rinse the fabric with special soap which removes the unactivated dye and then I cut and sew each piece into a practical piece of art. Hand waxed with organic beeswax.
Stylish clutch/wristlet/wallet with interior zipper pocket and slots for cards and cash. Waxed canvas takes on a nice patina with use and is weather resistant. Detachable leather swivel handle.
Green with sword fern design. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and this is the actual piece that you will receive. Fully lined with organic cotton muslin. Interior zipper pocket, 4 card pockets and 1 cash pocket.
Listing is for one item only. Last 2 pics are for size reference only.
