Petal bags, tags and fabric.. by carin smith

When a passion comes to life, beautiful things happen.

about the range: Says Carin . . . 

“The printed fabric is my inky floral drawings inspired by Cape Town Fynbos and urban gardens. The designs are either printed onto poly cotton or linen. The price is on demand as it’s depending on the fabric and how much of it is used.

The shoppers

Each shopper is a unique piece of art… they’re made up of my collection of botanical photos and inky floral drawings which is printed onto a primed artists canvas. The bags come with embossed adjustable leather handles, a hidden pocket and if you peek inside a little secret floral quote for you to find. A leather band inside makes sure that the bag is sturdy as well as durable. Some of the leather has also been hand dyed with flowers…

The bags come in 2 sizes;  medium (R550) & large (R750) . Each one takes 2 weeks to complete and is made to order.

The tags

These tags are made of porcelain and baked at a high temperature to add extra strength. They are embossed with Fynbos twigs which leaves a unique imprint. Each tag is painted with a thin layer of varnish to add extra strength but also so that you can reuse them as gift tags, by simply wiping the pencil off. They come in a set of 3 with natural string and retail at R120.”
