ALL NEW HAND-PAINTED TOTE BAGS

Finally! My new hand-painted bags are all  DONE! I moved all over this year carrying these bags around. It felt like an overdue labor… Once I settled back home at my studio, I grabbed some inspiration from street art, favorite writers quotes, some original illustrations,  my beloved Frida, and I even made my own stencils!

I really enjoyed making these bags. Specially, the process of hand-painting. I love the texture of the fabric paint; and how the fabric absorbs it; and the sound of the brush over the fabric. I love the detail of this process.  I also love making one of a kind pieces and the idea there is no other like it because even if a use a stencil, the process of hand-painting is never the same for each piece. And since I work around sets of bags collections, these are limited edition.

These cotton bags are now available HERE! !
