recycled denim eco- bag SOLD

This auction is for a tote bag made from fabric remnants and recyclings by Yozgang, a London teenage textile artist who has a passion (and gift) for both textiles and recycling.

Y is 16 and says that she can't remember a time when she didn't make things, she grew up in a very creative home and says that is where her creativity comes from - but its clear it comes from her distinctive abilities and ideas too.

She has been making and modifying her own clothes for some years now; she has done quite a bit of patchwork, particularly with unusual and recycled fabrics; she knits and weaves; she has a particular passion for recycling - I don't think she ever throws anything away!

This bag is made from recycled denim and other blue fabrics, sewn first into a patchwork and then made into a bag.

The bag is fully lined and has a little internal denim pocket:

The measurements of this bag are approximately 11.5 inches/29 cm wide, and 13 inches/33cm deep.
The handles are 26.5 inches/68cm long.

The auction begins at 9am on Monday 11th January and will end at 9pm on Sunday January 17th, New York time. The highest bidder before that time will win.

Bids start at $20 please.

Postage would be: UK - $3.50; Europe - $4.00; Worldwide outside Europe - $6.50 airmail, $5.00 surface mail.

Airmail arrives worldwide from the UK in 3-5 days.
