Shiny Backpack/Red w Gold Metallic Threads - $32 (Asheville)

123
Vintage. I had this made for me in the 80's from hand loomed cloth when I was designing.
Hand Loomed w/Metallic Threads. Vintage but Never Used ~
Hand loomed material using a bold red colored rayon cotton mixed with gold lurex threads.
Hand made individually. (I had it made for me in the 70's or 80's when I lived in Asia by my seamstress.)
Backpack style with two straps for carrying on your back. Hands-free portability.
The height is 16.25.
The bottom has a diameter of about 11" (and is round/oval)
The top opens up to about 14.5 inches (measured flat) ~ for an opening of a total of 29".
When the top is 'cinched' closed with the 'drawstring strap', each strap measures about 25".
There is a white cotton lining (clean and unused although vintage ~ was in storage). (You can see that the while cotton lining has not been used.)
Vintage but never worn (it was stored).
There is one zippered 'pocket' on one side but this is not a true pocket in that it goes all around the cotton liner. (could be used for paper documents, etc.?)
The two straps are cinch type (drawstring) straps (you pull both to close the top) and these are also the backpack straps to carry this item.
When the sunlight or artificial lights hit the lurex/metallic threads is when it REALLY pops! The gold lurex really sparkles when you are in a sunny or night light environment.
