Our Dressmakers Tote Bag is a large sturdy white cotton tote bag with three different unique prints commissioned by The Stitch Society from Hannah Turlington and are perfect for the dressmaker, sewing enthusiast or general maker.
Hannah takes inspiration from the beauty of the North Yorkshire countryside, people, places, history and humour of Yorkshire. She creates art that is fun, playful and a vision to behold. With her quirky and inspiring designs, she produces individual designs that make you smile. Hannah’s obsession with print and surface pattern design is something that is quite primal and has always had the ability to visualise what the end result will be.
Hannah always does ‘artist’s proofs’ and then only prints in very short print runs, maximum of 10 currently. Hannah explains this as not wanting to be reliant on a few images and would rather be working on and thinking about new images all of the time. Hannah’s current work is focusing on surface pattern design in the form of wallpaper and fabric, and she has recently completed commissioned wallpaper for homes. Hannah believes that art and surface pattern design should be a part of everyday life and would love to work with larger companies to create bespoke home wares and furnishings. She has worked for ‘PBS International’ who deal with pollen bags for crops internationally, for their company calendar and marketing material. It has been a marriage of science and surface pattern design that has created phenomenal results that are incredibly striking.
The Dressmakers Tote Bag is made in our durable 100% cotton canvas have black webbing handles and are printed with orange design. Hannah’s prints are hand carved from our lovely vintage haberdashery stash and capture the essence of the dressmakers essential tools.
