Up-Cycled Pure Silk Tote Bag with Self Storage Pocket
Silk is one of nature's strongest fibres. In the past, both parachutes and bulletproof vests were made of silk!
These tote bags are made from pure crepe silk fabric leftover from the production of our Up-Cycled Vintage Pure Silk clothing line.
Because the bags are made of silk, they weigh next to nothing. As well, we've created a small pocket on the inside of each tote so you can tuck the tote into its own little pouch to make it easier to stash between uses. Light enough to carry with you every day in your pocket or purse!
And we double-sew each seam to provide extra durability.
Patterns vary slightly on each tote bag.
17" x 14", strap hangs 12"
Size when stuffed into self-storage pouch: 4" x 4"
Our sheer garments are made with pure silk georgette or pure silk chiffon saris. The remainder of our silk items are made with a strong pure silk crepe.
Wash clothing separately in cold water by hand or in a net bag on delicate using mild detergent. Hang dry. Steam iron if desired.
CARING FOR PATCHED SILK:
If a patch seems to be lifting at the edges, it can easily be re-attached.
- Place a piece of white cotton fabric on the ironing board (in case the glue from the patch seeps through the fabric onto your ironing board.).
- Place the silk fabric with the area to be patched in a single layer on the white cotton.
- Place the patch over the fabric flaw on the silk fabric.
- Cover the silk fabric and the patch with a presscloth - a thin layer of cotton fabric.
- Press the patch on firmly through the presscloth with the iron temperature set to high. Repeat as necessary.
- Allow the patch to cool before moving the silk fabric off the ironing board.

All Norris motors clothing is made from up-cycled vintage silk saris. The saris are washed, ironed and steamed to clean and revitalize the fabric before they are turned into new garments.
Using vintage saris ensures that our pieces are one-of-a-kind and adhere to a sustainable lifestyle, but it also means that there may be some imperfections. We have examined each garment closely and have mended or patched as necessary.
We are happy to patch or refund any piece that you discover has imperfections that you had not anticipated.
Thank you for supporting our mission to dress people in ethical, eco-friendly and luxurious fashion.
