Lotus and Firefly Cross Body Handbag Purse - Waxed Canvas Bag - Screen Printed Fabric


Most of my items are currently made-to-order. Please review processing times in Shipping & Policies before ordering.

This pattern was inspired by Florence Nightingale, social reformer, statistician and founder of modern nursing. It’s part of my 2022 project, “Above and Beyond - A Celebration of Women in History through Print and Pattern”.

- Unique screen printed fabric panel designed and printed by Heidi West
- Two exterior rivet-reinforced pockets for phone, keys, etc.
- Magnetic clasp for main opening
- Two interior flat pockets
- Detachable adjustable canvas strap, up to 54”
- Durable construction with multiple layers of material
- Antique brass hardware
- 5/6 oz leather handles
- Built to last

Front Panel Fabric: Cotton Canvas
Waxed Canvas Body: Brown
Front Pocket Lining: Cotton Canvas
Inside Lining: Cotton Canvas

Exterior Dimensions: 10.5 inches wide at the bottom, 13 inches wide at the top x 10 inches high, 3.5 inch gusset

I created the bag design, designed the front panel fabric, screen printed the fabric panel and then sewed it all together in Portland, Oregon.

Because this item is handmade, the print/pattern may vary.

Care instructions: Spot clean only. Waxed canvas may feel slightly tacky at first, but the wax will wear into the fabric, which creates a rugged appearance; perfect for the rainy Pacific Northwest.

What can I say?!?!🤩 beautiful bag as usual! Love this print! This is a picture of the back of the bag to show the extra pocket option. Great for my work folder.

Gorgeous bag! Well worth the wait. I had very specific needs in mind for this bag and it checks all the boxes. Love the waxed canvas and the print is beautiful. I couldn't be more pleased.

Love this bag! Looks even more beautiful in person and looking forward to purchasing another in the near future.

My lotus and mayfly waxed canvas bag is perfect! Very well made with all the attention to extra details it needed and I would definitely buy one again when I can. I am really glad I found Heidi West's shop!

This bag is beautifully made and exactly what I was looking for. Pockets inside and outside with the additional crossbody strap make this a wonderful purse. Thank you.
