  • size 38x33x6 cm.
  • zipper (opening 27 cm.)
  • two inside pockets for keys, phone, etc.
  • handwoven cross-body strap ca. 120cm. (100% Norwegian sheep wool).
  • felt: 100% Finnish sheep wool (undyed, shades are natural sheep wool shades).
  • pure natural.
  • handmade in Finland, Lapland, Enontekiö.

 

This bag is made from Finnish sheep wool which I felt by hand. Since every product is handmade, each product is unique.

 

The shades of the felt are undyed natural sheep wool shades. Due to the nature of natural fibre, colours may vary slightly and may contain some traces of vegetable matter.

 

The cross-body strap I have woven by hand, using the Sámi band weaving technique. The woven bands, called “pirtanauha” were traditionally used as shoelaces, belts, etc. This technique is plain and simple and only uses a heddle, shuttle and a back-strap.
