Mermaids Sea Sirens Betty frame handbag purse Alexander Henry bag handmade in England


A unique piece designed and crafted by me in Sussex.

This stunning handmade frame bag with its fabulous cabbages design is sure to turn heads everywhere you go. It will look as fabulous at work or out and about as it would in the evening transforming any outfit.

With its stylish hand stitched frame and smooth curved wooden handle that feels very comfortable in the hand or over your arm.
I have hand-stitched the bag onto the frame using turquoise thread which complements both the stunning exterior and the stunning turquoise and blue gold flecked swirly lining.

Four generous pockets complete the interior and a matching detachable strap converts this fabulous handbag into a stylish and practical shoulder bag.

The exterior fabric is called Brassica.
