COMBINING LACE and embossed stitches, the fabric on this handbag has a fascinating texture. This is enhanced by the choice of a tweed yarn - here, a soft wool-viscose aran-weight from Rico looks particularly effective. It’s available in 10 neutral and warm shades. It is knitted in two pieces, and fully lined with wadding and fabric. It can be personalised with your own choice of handles, which are sewn on to garter stitch bands at the top. The bag is closed with a press fastener.
