Handbag exhibition at Valtopina

My black and white bag ‘positive-negative’ has just returned from this exhibition in Valtopina (Perugia) in Italy entitled 'Filo di segno opposto'. I was invited to make a bag for the exhibition reflecting the idea of opposites and after much thought I decided on this black and white theme. I also decided to use Bedfordshire lace as a distinctive English lace. The beautifully produced catalogue I received when the bag returned shows the diversity and skill of the other participants and includes interesting essays on various aspects of bags through history, as well as a catalogue of the historical bags that were exhibited with the contemporary ones.
