SKU: Eucalyptus Purse Categories: , ,


This purse is made of many layers of merino wool over a resist which allows the purse to be made with no seams.  Strands of Firestar, a nylon material that creates a shimmer and shine when wet felted with the wool.  I then used eucalyptus leaves to create the stunning design.  The leaves were wrapped into the bag and steamed for several hours.  This allowed the tannins to be leached from the plants and become a permanent part of the bag.  The orange color is from the plant’s tannins reacting with the iron mordant which I use to make the prints colorfast.  The bag has a strong magnetic closure and leather strap.  The strap is 20” long the bag is 12.5” L x 9.5” T
