I’ve just found several lovely handbags and will show them to you over the next few days. Remember, I promised that there will be several warm-weather items coming along with the more seasonal (for the northern hemisphere) kinds of things.
This one is a macrame’ type of weave (the kind of thing that women were really keen about doing at home in the 1970’s), but was done commercially, with not a mistake to be found and on a small scale. Most home-made macrame’ (not all of it) is much larger so it’s wonderful to find a hand-made item in a small, elegant size and style.
The purse is fully-lined in white fabric, with a small inside pocket and the maker’s label inside, too. This was the way that they made these bags in the Fifties and Sixties. The outside is the important part, as the inside is almost always very plain.
Nothing looks nicer with a Spring or Summer frock, casual or dressed-up. In every true vintage wardrobe, a small selection of white bags is a must!
