Fitzwilliam Darcy Tie Dye Tote Bag
Its a truth universally acknowledged that a knitter must be in want of a Skein Austen tote bag, now in tie-dye!
With each tote bag being hand-dyed, every one is just as unique & one of a kind as you punks are! This tote has hues of yellow, orange, blue and pink and is named after the smouldering hero of Jane's novel Pride and Prejudice.
With a 2 colour screen-printed design in a quintessential Regency blue and black and hand-dyed using Dylon dyes, Skein Austen is printed on ethical Westford Mill tote bags. These durable bags are made from 100% cotton, and is 37cm wide, 41cm long, with straps that are approx. 31cm length, from the top of the strap to the bag opening.
Perfect to transport your current WIPs or favourite Austen novel, show the world you're a punk rock Janeite with this Jane Austen inspired bag.
Us lot at Skeinhead love Jane Austen, she's a massive icon of ours; Jane has been giving societal expectations & pressures put on women the middle finger for the last 2 centuries in her classic witty way, and we adore her for it!
This is our take on what Jane would be like today, with loads of little nods to her: tattoos saying Darcy and Bath, she's wearing her signature ring and a cap saying the recognisable phrase 'Obstinate, Headstrong Girl!' and her favourite novel Sisters Before Misters; its time we all take a leaf out of Jane's book!
Whats even better is that with every shirt & tote bag sold, profits will be going to the Jane Austen House Museum, a charity that keeps the magic of Austen alive for future generations & Janeites alike. The Jane Austen House Museum is the only place where Jane lived and wrote that is open to the public, and as somewhere so important & precious to us at Skeinhead, we would love to raise some money to further maintain the property and keep up the museum's amazing work collecting & restoring Austen artefacts.
Due to the nature of this tote bag being hand dyed, please ensure you wash the tote bag by hand in lukewarm water separately, especially for the first few washes.
