Materials Technology Student Raising Funds For Charity With Bespoke Handbag

I have created a handbag for my Year 13 Materials project and to fundraise for the Well Foundation’s Diagnostic Breast Screening project. The bag is being auctioned and all funds from this auction will go towards this amazing cause.

This unique black leather handbag is one of a kind. It has been made with sustainably sourced leather and features gold hardware, chain detail and an exclusive hemp cotton lining. The handbag itself is a stylish tote bag, perfect for everyday use. It can fit a laptop, drink bottle and other necessary items such as wallet and keys, without sacrificing its aesthetic. It features an internal zip pocket, a detachable coin purse, two different strap styles, and a detachable interior purse. I hand designed the blossom pattern for the interior lining, which has been commercially screen printed by Hemp Tech. The finished piece measures 41cm wide by 38cm high.

Also included in the auction package is an $80 voucher from Mae Shoes and a $100 voucher from cravehome.
