A tribal print tote, the perfect summer accessory. It can serve many purposes and is great for buzzing around; shopping, going to the park, books and magazines, groceries, anything really. Its yours to decide.

The straps make it a comfortable tote to carry on the shoulder. The fabric I have used is known as 'Ankara'- an African wax print fabric from Nigeria, West Africa. The bag is lined internally with contrasting navy blue cotton fabric and folds away into a small square for easy storage when it is not in use. A great substitute for those plastic bags!

Dimensions:
Height: 42 cm (16.5")
Width : 35 cm (14") at top, 45cm (18")at base
Straps: 28 cm (11")
