I printed this lovely pink cotton canvas by hand using stamps which I carved myself. This octopus is a mixture of a late medieval octopus as depicted in a 16th century manuscript as well as a little bit of modern and ancient Minoan inspiration. The decorative border is based on a border tile pattern from the 13th century.
All seams of the bag were reinforced. The whole bag was lined with black cotton fabric. All used fabrics were pre-washed. The bag is machine washable if needed.
