Kate Sheridan Black Large Telegram Bag
Our Giga tote is perfect for days when there is a lot to carry. A spacious, lightweight but strong tote, featuring sturdy vegetable tanned bridle handles. The bag is cut and sewn in Suffolk then sent to us in Clapton for finishing. We hand edge paint the straps and attach them inhouse. The bag can be folded in and clipped at the sides to make a smaller and more triangular shape, or used open for full effect. Made from water resistant British waxed cotton with a slightly antique look finish which will age beautifully with wear. Finished with Italian brass hardware in Silver.
This is made using waxed cotton from British Millerain, a renowned Lancashire-based mill who have been producing cloth since 1880. A classic British heritage cloth, waxed cotton is water and wind resistant, but also breathes well. This makes it perfect for everyday wear, be that in a rain mac or a handbag.
Traditional waxed cotton should not be machine or hand washed with any detergents, as this will strip the wax coating off and may lead to uneven marks in the cloth. We recommend sponge cleaning the material with water, and mud/dirt should always be left to dry before being brushed off. Our most popular wax colours; Sand comes complete with a characteristic 'antique' semi creased finish.
Waxed Cotton cloth can be re-waxed after heavy use or when needed. For top ups, we sell smaller tins here, which are heated in water bath and then applied to the garment or bag with a lint free, clean cotton cloth. It should then be left to hang dry for a recommended 24 hours in a well ventilated space.
