'Magasin' lavender hanging


Recently I came across a collection of old fabric samples from the department stores of Paris.

They were from the early C20th and were used to select the fine lawns, tulles, and silks from the haberdashery department. I was inspired by the wonderful fabrics and beautiful detail of the labels.

This collection of lavender bags, has evolved from the samples. The bags are made of linen, organdie and backed with vintage ticking or print. The organdie is filled with french lavender, which can be replaced over time. The bag is finished with a vintage haberdashery detail at the base of the hanging ribbon.

Each bag is slightly different- if you would like a particular bag from the photographs, please contact me before ordering.

The hanging size of the bags are: Au Bon Marche 42cm by 7.5cm; Grand Magasins 40cm by 9cm; Galeries Lafayette 46cm by 8.5cm.
