Description

A really cool shape for a bag. Boho but elegant. Wider at the top and with a flat bottom panel, it is designed ti sit comfortable on the floor without falling over. The straps/handles are short, so its really a carry, but they are just long so you can put on as a shoulder if you want to. Inside is lined with more batik and has one zipped pocket and interior magnetic clasp. The patchwork of old batik they are made from are soft material and muted colours.

60cm across at the zip

35cm across at the base

35cm from the top to the bottom

Old batiks are turned into large patchwork lengths of material and shipped all over Indonesia, particularly to Bali, where it is turned into all manner of goods. Lots of people make bags, but not many make them as well as Emy. Her family makes the bags to Emy's designs which are what make them stand out from the crowd - better shapes, better ideas, better quality. Four different bags - two sizes of carry bags, the interesting Tanaka that has a flat base and the curved Moon Spoon.
