Rising Sun - The City Hobo

We had this amazing print for a while now. I love that it combines traditional Japanese prints in a modish way. I never got an inspiration for a purse coz it was so beautiful by itself, any design didn't seem good enough. Moreover, the fabric was a little delicate. Just yesterday, I flipped through my fabric box and found this again. I had wanted to do a hobo and suddenly everything clicked, and Rising Sun was born in an afternoon!

Since the print is a little thinner than our usual cottons, with a little bit of interfacing and a marine grade canvas top and inside, its now ready to be a hard-working tote!

Traditional Japan in a chic, modish, city twist. Do you like? ;+)
