I love tartan wool fabrics. I used the Cunningham Tartan from Pendleton Woolen Mills for the exterior of this pleated shoulder bag. It is fully lined with black cotton but has red zippers at the top closure and for the inside pocket. I even added red lining fabric to the inside pocket because why make it all black. It also has a small slip pocket and a key leash inside. Like almost all of my bags this one is interlined with pellon for extra support.
Bag measures about 15" by 12 1/2". The shoulder strap attaches to the bag with a combination of matching wool loops and D-rings with the heavy purse chain and a middle section of the wool and more D-rings. It measures about 36 1/2" long with a drop of about 17" to the top of the bag. I think the bit of chain takes it from ordinary to something just a bit special.
Care: dry clean only
