I've noticed the big trend this spring with floral prints just about everywhere from Pinterest to catalogs to style blogs. Today, I'm happy to officially launch our latest take on the floral trend with the No. 33 floral cross-body bag.
Created from burlap featuring bright magenta pink industrial type, the bag features a bright yellow, purple, and pink floral linen print fabric. The accent fabric forms the bottom of the bag and lines the entire interior. It is a perfect match to the magenta type on the burlap and brings an element of playfulness to the otherwise "serious" burlap design. Plus, I've rarely seen a printed linen fabric (or maybe I don't get out much) so I love that the texture of the fabric is soft and airy.
The bag is designed as a messenger-style so it can be held across the body or over the shoulder using the long woven strap. The strap is removable if needed. I decided to keep the interior simple by having no small pockets, since the bag is already meant to be pretty compact. This floral bag seals shut with a metal YKK ivory zipper featuring a suede zipper pull. I ended up boxing out the bottom corners of the bag to give it more of a flat bottom and make it easier to expand with larger contents on the inside.
The design is fresh and bright. I imagine someone carrying this while strolling a street or farmer's market, since it's easy to carry and allows you to have free hands. The No. 33 floral bag is available in our Etsy shop as of this evening. Find out more info and see more photos here.
