What is so attractive about handmade bags?

A good bag needs to hold your 'stuff’ without compromising your style. Bags should be practical - we need them, especially now as single use plastic bags are being phased out.

We use them for all sorts of things and they must feel right for us - some of us are very particular about our bags!

We usually know what we want and whether the bag is going to be practical and strong enough for its purpose, so things like size, durability and versatility are important when choosing a new one, but there is more to it than that.

We use them daily for going shopping, to the gym or yoga, beach walks, out for lunch or a party, to class, going to work or for travelling and more!  You are only limited by your imagination...

A tote bag is big and roomy enough to hold loads of useful stuff in one place. You can fit everything that you will need for a day at the beach or at work and even use them for collapsible home storage.

Crossbody bags are many people’s favourite type of bags because they leave your hands free.

Hemp embroidered crossbody bags - Pallu Design

We love to select vintage embroideries and indigo dyed  hemp fabrics to upcycle into our crossbody bags, adding beads, tassels and bells for fun.

Textile artisans in remote villages have created exotic masterpieces for centuries using hand weaving, block printing, batik designs, natural plant dyeing, beading and colourful embroidery.  You can feel the texture and inbuilt energy of truly handmade textiles - that glow of energy in each piece of cloth.   If you want to find something truly unique, you won't find in the local shops or in the mainstream shopping centres.
