Bags with vintage handmade embroidery

I like the combination of vintage needlepoint I find at flea markets around Copenhagen, fabric and recycled bike inner tube.
I think of all the many hours someone has been working with needle and thread an put so much love in to it, and I'm glad to give it a new life.

I make bags and pouches, I line them and most of them has a pocket inside and an adjustable strap.

I just made a few new ones and if you are in Copenhagen you can find these and more in Amtorp a beautiful art and craft shop in the center of town.

Inner tube bags, jewelry and accessories at Amtorp

I'm happy to tell that "Amtorp - Danish Art & Craft", a newly opened art and craft shop in the center of Copenhagen (Hyskenstræde 12, 1207 København K) now carry a lot of my inner tube bags, purses and jewelry along with my small ear studs in plastic.

Marianne  Amtorp is a glass artist,  you can see her blow beautiful unique glass beads in the shop, along with handmade art and craft from many other artists.
