Quilted tote bag Arun
Cotton quilted tote bag - beige and charcoal
This beige quilted tote bag in cotton is designed in Paris and hand block printed in India by expert artisans. Block printing is an ancestral technique from Rajasthan in the West of India. It consists of hand printing fabric using carved wooden blocks.
This piece uses the Bagru technique of printing dark patterns using natural dyes on a beige background. Before dyeing, the fabric is soaked in a natural mordant made from the myrobalan fruit and which binds color to the fabric and gives it a distinct yellowish color. Natural shades of red are created by mixing varying proportions of alum, madder and acacia arabica. Alum is used for greys and fermented waste iron, jaggery, and water for blacks.
This beige quilted tote bag with its positive attitude ("la vie est belle" means "life is beautiful" in French) will cheer up your spirit. It will delight you with its unique aesthetics and irregularities of the fabric that make it even more special. This bag will become your indispensable travel companion with its pretty charcoal floral pattern that will add a dash of elegance to your outfit !
