This handmade Harris Tweed bumble bee sling bag is part of a range originally inspired by a one-off creation for UN World Bee day. The bee detail on the front panel is embroidery / appliqué on a yellow Harris Tweed embroidered with a honeycomb and incorporates a zipped pocket handy, for example, for a large phone. The side panels are black Harris Tweed and the rear panel is yellow textured vinyl with a top hanger. The lining is a yellow waterproof ripstop nylon and incorporates a slip pocket made in a bee-patterned cotton.
A great gift for a bee-lover! UK shipping is free. This item will be tissue-wrapped and sent securely in a cardboard posting box.

My bumble bee sling bag is 30 cm high, 20 cm wide with a depth of 9 cm. The strap is 2.5 cm wide in yellow webbing and adjustable between 68 and 120 cm in length so the bag can be worn on the shoulder or cross-body. The top zip is black nylon and clasps/pulls are all black metal. Alternative d-rings are provided for slinging the bag to the left or right.
The maker’s label and Harris Tweed Orb label of authenticity are placed internally.
