Campanula purse

Another new style has now been added to my shop. The Campanula purse. It follows the Minus philosophy of being clean, functional and above all pragmatic, but I've added another ingredient...femininity.

The shape is loosely based on the bell flower, hence the name... and gives it a cute but feminine touch. It's a useful handbag that can be carried with its handles or worn as a shoulder bag. Also, by adding the removable and fully adjustable shoulder strap, it can also be worn like a messenger.

I guess the size is most useful for commuting, when you need somewhere to put your latest paperback, magazine, lunchbox, and everyday essentials.

Inside there is a zip pocket which runs almost the whole width of the bag, and a further two pockets plus a trigger clip. The bag is fully lined and completely interlined with a natural heavyweight cotton canvas, so that it provides strength and rigidity.

Outside the curved flap is fastened with a snap fastener and d-ring while at the rear of the bag there is a full width sleeve pocket with magnetic fastener, useful for things that need to be close to hand.

Its currently available in black or bubblegum, but I will be adding another new colour in early Spring.
