A handmade Harris Tweed shoulder bag showing the ‘Coming Home Trees’ on the front panel in free-motion embroidery & appliqué. The sides and back panels are a grey/blue Harris Tweed and for a robust design the adjustable khaki strap wraps right underneath the bag. The lining is a green waterproof ripstop nylon with a slip pocket on one side; on the other side is a slip pocket formed with bright ‘Alice in Wonderland’ canvas with an integral zipped pocket.
The Coming Home Trees shoulder bag is 18 cm high, 28 cm wide with a depth of 8 cm. The khaki webbing strap is 2.5 cm wide and adjusts to a maximum length of 120 cm. The zips are green nylon and the clasps, pulls and d-rings are all brushed brass.
A great gift for a Cornwall fan! The shoulder bag will be tissue-wrapped and sent securely in a cardboard posting box. I am happy to post to a gift recipient and will add a gift card with your message if you wish. Just enter the recipient’s address for shipping and tell me your message in the checkout comments box. UK postage will be free.
The maker’s label and Harris Tweed Orb label of authenticity are placed internally.
Cookworthy Knapp, or The ‘Coming Home’ or ‘Nearly There’ trees are a famous sight on the A30 to returning residents of Kernow or travellers coming to holiday in Cornwall. They are situated at Lifton near the Devon/Cornwall border and were originally planted by a farmer around 1900. It is said that the copse of beech trees was planted in a heart shape (when viewed from the air) for his wife. There’s even a facebook group!
