Vintage flower power messenger bag SOLD

This is a fairly generous sized messenger style bag, with an adjustable strap.

Designed around 2 vintage mats with a fab. flower power design;

the bag is made of strong but lightweight black linen, with one flower-mat on the front flap, and a second on the back of the bag.

The flower-mat on the back of the bag acts as a large pocket, with snap fasteners at the top edge.

Under the front flap, there is another large pocket which fastens with a vintage button.

And inside - more pockets! also made of brightly coloured vintage fabric.

There is a large internal pocket which fastens with a vintage button

and a smaller pocket, divided into 2 sections.

There is a wide shoulder strap, reinforced with multiple layers of fabric.

The strap is adjustable - long enough to wear as a cross-body bag, or can be shortened.
The strap attaches with a vintage black buckle,

and vintage buttons to adjust the strap.

This would be a good bag for travelling, as it easily folds quite compactly.

The bag measures approximately 18 inches/46cm across and 13 inches /33cm deep, with a gusset around 2 inches/5cm.

The strap is 1.5 inches/nearly 4cm wide, and can be adjusted from a maximum of 39 inches/99cm down to a minimum of 34.5 inches /87.5cm. Though, in fact, the buttons could easily be moved (or more buttons added) to give further choice of strap length.
