A Vintage Clothing Story
The travels of a found fabric piece
IN THE BEGINNING
There was once an intricately woven piece of fabric from India, full of cross-over stitches, mirrors and hundreds of little square patches of fabric from every decade and design. It carried the story of a thousand suns.
A NEW HOME
One day a girl purchased this unusual piece from a vintage clothing market. She decided to make it into a purse. She set out to find matching trim, a strap and closure pieces.
She started to sew creating something totally new from what was once most likely a blanket. Now just a remnant asking to be given new life. A found object wanting to become a part of something bigger and better.
A PURSE IS BORN
And from the scrappage came a lovely bohemian bag, complete with wide long strap and bucket boho shape. A multi-colored dream, perfect to complement any outfit, and it was sold at Flashbacks.
