tote with aloe stamp
Tote with screen print of aloe stamp and postmark of Cape Town. The back is made of a black denim. The bag is finished with red leather accents. Lockable with a hidden magnetic clasp. Lined with a quirky black and white polka dot fabric with inner zippered pocket for keys, cell phone, etc..
The colourful and playful textiles are all hand made using screen printing methods unique to Yda. She won several awards like the “Elle Decoration International Design Award – Best Textile”. The artwork incorporates beautifully dyed and vibrant felts, cloth and buttons. The images are inspired by city street life of South Africa with it's complexity of the informal and formal, the modern and traditional and the blend of cosmopolitan Africa. SOUTH is pleased that the artwork is labour intensive, no two pieces are identical and it creates work for single mothers in a country with chronic unemployment.
