recycled - upcycled laptop bag SOLD

This laptop bag or pouch is made from 2 recycled wool sweaters which have been felted in the washing machine. Its ideal for protecting your laptop when it goes into a larger bag - or when its just lying around the place...

The front is striped and the back is plain black.

The opening is a simple pillow-case closing overlapping the top edge, and fastens with a vintage button and two snap-fasteners.

The pouch is lined with vintage 1950's or 60's fibreglass curtain fabric - this adds strength to the pouch, and it also gives a relatively dust-free interior and at least a bit of water-resistance, so should give the laptop some additional protection too.

The internal dimensions of this bag are approx. 13 inches/33cm by 10 inches/25.5cm.

My laptop measures 11 inches/28cm by 8.5inches /21.5cm and its about one inch/2.5cm thick, and it fits in here with some room to spare in all directions.

The auction begins at 9am on Monday January 25th, and will end at 9pm Sunday January 31st , New York time. The highest bidder at that time will win.

Bids start at $25 please.

Postage would be: UK - $1.50 (1st class); Europe - $2.75 airmail; Worldwide outside Europe - $4.30 airmail; $2.40 surface mail.
Airmail worldwide from the UK should take from 5 days, surface mail can take from 6 weeks though is sometimes quicker.
