this purse has nearly 50 embroidered arrows - it's incredibly eye-catching and has a great energy. the details are important as I wish to emphasise the spirit of frida kahlo...the frida embroidered patch has been sewn with small zig zag stitching and the lining has a black arrow that points upwards and outwards of the opened purse. the lining is painted to replicate that school pencil case that was marked by leaking pens and crayons. I think about the marks that are made through experience and living and I try to introduced these thoughts into the making.
dimensions are 20.5 x 15.5 cm
