Small Gift Bag with Hen or Chicken
Our gift bags are made from the same gorgeous paper that we use for many of our pictures. They are handmade out in southern India and have a lovely rough edge along the top. All are similar but no two are identical; they are finished with a hemp string handle. We love them.
The paper is a handmade cotton rag paper from southern India. Cotton rags have longer fibres than linters which are the shorter fluffy fibres of the cotton seed generally used in papermaking. Genuine rag papers are rare and it is the fibre length of this raw material that gives this particular rag paper its exceptional strength and durability. The cotton rag used comes from T-shirt cuttings, a reliable source of pure woven cotton.
This bag is finished by us in our Norfolk studio and features a little fluffy chicken or hen - a lovely finishing touch to a gift for a chicken fancier!
The small bag measures 14 x 10 x 5 cms
The larger bag measures 25 x 20 x 12 cms
