About the Tote Bag:
I naturally dyed these totebags in my kitchen using turmeric with accents of paprika, wine, beets, and spinach. To me, their bright yellows represent the feeling of sun on your face after a long winter spent inside. Each bag has a unique embroidered detail that tells a story or evokes a gesture. This process of hand-stitching was my way of connecting to my Croatian grandmother, whom I’m forever learning and relearning from.
