Product Spotlight: Wool Check Pouch
When I visited London at the end of last year, I was looking forward to perusing some shops and markets for special materials to add to my designs. I found a great haberdashery shop near where we were staying and popped in, not knowing I'd stumble across some beautiful wool fringe, which I used in some previous designs, and wool check trim.
I love the geometric checkered pattern of this trimming and that it's woven from wool to nicely compliment the Portuguese wool I use. It adds the perfect pop to the wool zip pouches which are available in four colors: Black, Army Green, Cherry, and Ice Blue/Gray.
Multiple customers that have purchased a wool pouch have shared with me how it's become something they use and reach for everyday - and how it's deceptively roomy! I can relate, as it holds various small odds and ends in my tote bag and saves me from the frustration of rifling around the bottom of my bag. It's a great travel companion that can fit your small wallet, computer charger, phone charger, a mini notebook, and a snack bar, among other things.
The pouch is unlined but with the wool being natural and durable... it's also fire and water resistant, abrasion resistant, and anti-electrostatic and while these don't matter in handbag land, it certainly proves the toughness of these textile. What you may be interested in is that it's very easy to care for and repels dirt! If you spill anything on it, you can carefully spot treat and let it air dry. You can also iron it using the wool setting on your iron and steam, making sure to protect with a tea towel (very important).
All of this to say, the Wool Check Pouch is a very special and reliable everyday essential that I'm so happy many customers have come to use and love!
