Blue Elephant Bowler Bag - Tester/Sample at Reduced Price

Regular price $119.99 CAD Sale

I've always loved the shape of bowler bags and finally made one. This Blue Elephant version was my 'test' bag and has a slight flaw in that the front flap is a bit crooked. The asking price has been lowered accordingly.  

The whimsical elephant in a symphony of blues with colourful flowers and pops of neon colour, takes centre stage. It's paired with a luminescent pearl blue cork which enhances the colour scheme. Coordinating prints from Tula Pink's Everglow fabric line were used for the lining, gusset and pockets. 

There are two slip pockets on the exterior of the bag, both of which securely fasten with a flap and flip lock on one side and a magnetic snap on the other, and there is a zipper pocket on the inside of the bag. The interior of the bag is finished with binding, which provides sturdy structure for the bowler shape. The base of the bag has purse feet, to protect it from getting soiled.

The adjustable strap is made out of cork. 

Details:
Fabrics: 100% premium cotton and cork fabric as well as various interfacings and stabilizers for structure. The cotton fabric has been lightly sprayed with Scotchgard.

Approx. 9" tall, 10.75" wide at the base, 4.25" deep. 
Adjustable Crossbody Strap: 60" at longest (including the hooks); 35" at the shortest.

Care:
Spot clean only – use very gentle detergent and a soft cloth; do not put in washing machine or dryer. CAUTION: If you choose to use an iron to remove any creases from the cotton fabric, be very careful to not touch the cork as heat will damage it.

Information about Cork Fabric:
The cork fabric used on this bag is imported from Portugal and is real cork fused to a soft, flexible cotton woven fabric backing. Per the importer: this cork is a natural, sustainable, vegan, PETA approved, eco friendly product from Portugal.  It is Touch Pro and upholstery grade quality. It has been treated with Scotchgard, UV and abrasion protectants. It can be wiped clean with a soft cloth and a weak soapy solution.

Important Notes about Cork Fabric: 

  • Because of the nature of cork, coming from a natural wood source, the surface is pitted with small holes and cracks. This is part of the appearance and natural quality. 
  • When folded, cork can sometimes have small superficial cracks that do not go through the fabric backing and do not affect the structural integrity of the project. 
  • Dark and bright colored dyes can sometimes rub or wear off on sharp corners, such as boxed corners at the bottom of bags or folded edges. 
  • You cannot iron cork as the heat will damage the glues used in making the cork fabric.

Expect normal wear and tear with use, especially on corners.
