If you desire to feel the texture of the amazing leather used in making these handmade items, please ask for a sample in the color(s) you are considering. Kathleen can have it to you within a week!
Dance Bag ~ Kathleen's signature bag DB: The leather-lined Dance Bag is small at just 3" x 4-5/8" when closed but can also be used for a passport using an inside snap and lengthening it to 4 5/8 x 6. It also has two outside snaps for expansion. There is just one credit card slot but it will stretch to accomodate many cards and license (mine in expanded a whole inch!) The inside zipper pocket can be used for change, lipstick or keys when out on the town!
The 60" leather string strap can easily be shortened by just tying it and cutting off the excess. Or convert to wear around the waist when dancing by pulling the leather strings through the holes to tightness desired and bow-tying them under the flap.
DB1: Snakeskin or special effects extra.
Passport Bag PS: For your passport! Slip it inside or into the back pocket. Velcro closure on flap. Measures 5" x 4-3/8". Removable nylon cord strap is made to whatever length you designate. Can be worn around neck for overseas travel, as a bag over the shoulder, or hands-free around the waist. Undetectable under sweater or jacket. Leather is preferable but can be made in suede.
Crescent Bag CB: Size is aproximately 3" x 8" inside useable space, with a 4-inch gusset. The short strap allows you to tuck the bag under your arm. Made in suedes only with small card pocket inside. Inside backed in suede for greater durability.
All the following bags have a window card pocket inside. They are signed by Kathleen, named and numbered on the Dupioni silk lining under the window.
The Draw System: when a bag has weight in it and one picks up the straps, it closes by itself.
Slip Bag SB: This one is flapless. Measuring 6 inches high by 4" x 5", it is my smallest bag next to the dance bag. A great evening bag! The straps are not adjustable so you will need to let me know how long you want them.
Back Bag BB: This is my version of the popular back pack. As you look at it, the bag measures 4" across the top of the flap, 7" across the bottom of the bag, and 8" high. The gusset expands from 6" at the top to 3" at the base to allow easy access. Outside back zipper pocket; brass or nickel toggle closure. Thin straps widen at the shoulder. They can be shortened by tying them at the front hole and cutting with scissors. Please advise if you are an extra tall woman!
Gap Bag GB: This popular bag is 5-3/8" x 6" x 5". It has a sweet feature...I turned the pocket on the back vertical for ease in putting cell phone, keys, or sunglasses in. Adjustable strap, as above. Please indicate button, toggle, velcro or magnetic closure.
GB1: Back zipper pocket horizontal.
Trip Bag TB: A slightly different shape, this bag measures 5 inches across the top, 9" across the bottom, 6" high and 3" deep. Outside zipper pocket is horizontal, strap is adjustable. Nice details can be achieved by buttons, flaps can be done in special effects leathers. Colors can be combined as can leather and suedes. Please indicate button, toggle, velcro or magnetic closure.
