A set consisting **RHOMBUS HANDBAG**, **RHOMBUS SHOULDER-BAG** and **RHOMBUS POCKET**. They are all made of the same cotton-linen textile and of the same design emphasis - the rhombus part of the cloth. The three can be bought separately (for which please go to the main page), yet this set is a special offer: two bags and a pocket for only €36.65!
Note that both the handbag and the shoulder-bag are the **only ones** in the world, meaning that you won't be able to enjoy this special offer if any of them is taken by someone else before you make the order.
Handbag - ca. 35x27 cm (the main body of the bag); ca. 17 cm (the handling bands)
Shoulder-bag - ca. 30cm long, 18cm wide (the bag); total length of the band ca. 80cm
Pocket - ca. 20cm wide, 12cm high; zip length: ca. 15cm
**A story about the material**
The material used for making this bag brings us to Fata'an, a Pangcah village in eastern Taiwan, where I live when I come back to Taiwan from the Netherlands, also the neighbour from my home village Tafalong (the two villages are about two kilometres away from each other, separated by two rivers).
In Fata'an there is only one textile shop. One day I stepped in and started a conversation with the shop owner, who, unlike me, is a Han Taiwanese (I'm Pangcah). During the conversation I saw something intriguing - some pieces of clothes with exotic patterns and colours.
"What is this?" I asked.
"Oh, that's the last remaining pieces of such textile. It was designed by a customer and was manufactured for his specific use... I don't remember what... And these are the leftover."
"Do you mean that they are the only still available ones in the entire world now?"
"Then I want them all!"
This is how I acquired this cloth - scissored into several pieces, and out of them I made some bags. The surface touch of this textile, for it is a mixture of cotton and linen, is a little bit rough, unlike nylon-containing textiles that are very smooth. Yet this special rough touch, along with its colours and patterns, became the inspiration of my design. I call these bags of the **tribal totem motif**.
