Art to Carry Textiles

Art to Carry Textile Totes are hand painted and hand dyed baskets to use for plants, handcrafts,  stitchery, breads, or yarn. Great for a table top accessory to showcase treasures or perfect as a hostess gift filled with home baking or a selection of teas!

The exterior is made from high quality artist canvas covered with a clear Gesso and painted with acrylic paints. The exterior has also been treated with a fabric protector to help keep it clean. The interior is hand dyed 100% cotton. There is no internal structure so the Textile Tote has a relaxed form and an attractive coordinating cuff.

The Textile Tote should be spot cleaned only.

Art to Carry Sketchbooks are covered in custom designed fabrics from my studio. Each sketchbook has a variety of surface design elements incorporated into the cover.

The sketchbooks have a durable, heavy duty cardboard softcover under the fabrics with 48 pages of 128gsm, acid free paper. Ideal for quick sketching with graphite, coloured pencils, charcoal, pen, ink, markers and light dry brush work. The large sketchbooks measure 8″ x 5 1/2″ and the small sketchbooks measure 4” x 5 1/2” and are staple bound.

Perfect for the handbag or backpack for on-the-go art moments, to give as gifts for family and friends. Think of housewarming, corporate or incentive prizes too!
