This is a large carry all tote, but with the added option to close it as a purse (sides fold in and attach together with a hook and D-ring). All hand sewn with waxed linen. It is made of beautifully soft leather with a slight pebble finish. It's also the perfect bag to carry your laptop.
As most Stitch and Tickle bags, the leather used is irresistibly soft and the bags pretty light weight.

A recurring theme in her work revolved around hyper-consumerism and the waste our society generates. So it seemed natural that, when investigating her own business, she would choose to do something ethically sound by making handmade items, locally. In 2011, while unable to find a bag that would fit her taste and needs, she started playing with leather and Stitch and Tickle was born! Truong's process creating bags is the same as in her artwork: it is intuitive and tactile, so the leather she disovers always dictates what the final product will be. Yet, all bags have the same qualities: they are simple, beautiful, functional and timeless.
