The “titarella” tote bag is a one of a kind handbag contructed from vintage Hawaiian fabric and remnant upholstery bits. The interior of this carryall is unlined due to the sturdy and durable upholstery fabric shell. An exterior pocket is also added for your convenience. The idea is that you can simply throw this handbag in the washing machine afer repeated use. This is my favorite handbag as it is neither too fussy or precious of a design. It is perfect for everyday errands.
This is my signature hand-bag!
Sized at 11″ x 9″ when folded over (15″ x 9″ open flat) it’s even the perfect size to include your iPad with those other items.
Puka shells originally were naturally occurring bead-like objects which can be found on some beaches in Hawaii. These were beachworn pieces of cone snail shells, a kind of seashell. Puka is the Hawaiian word for “hole” and refers to the naturally occurring hole in the middle of these rounded and worn shell fragments. These natural beads were made into necklaces.
