A Color Block Silk Drawstring Bag: Modernist Appeal

$85.00 USD

early to mid twentieth century
8" x 10" x 10", 20 cm x 25.5 cm x 25.5 cm

This boldly designed, piece-constructed drawstring bag is hand stitched from over 35 pieces of silk.

The silk pieces are arranged in such a way so their color contrasts with one another: the color white/cream is used to heighten this effect.

The silks are obviously recycled from garments and other textiles and the bag shows signs of wear: there is a faint stain on the bottom of the bag as can be seen in the detail photo that accompanies this post.

The bag's drawstring seems original to the piece which is still function and has a good deal of life.
