Two new items have been added to the list of items available here at Chana's Loom.
Not everyone likes using a purse or bag with a single-strap. Some people prefer the comfort of a backpack-style bag.
My Drawstring Backpacks are the perfect size for taking items you need for the day in a convenient hands-free way. Toss in your wallet, keys, bottle of water, phone and some snacks and be on your way.
Currently these bags are only available by custom order. Bags are approximately 35cm X 43cm (14" X 17"). Two hand-twisted cording straps are sewn permanently into the bottom of the bag and with a simple pull tightly-close the top of the bag. Bags can be lined. Size can also be adjusted to fit customer needs.
Off-the-shelf bags will be available soon.
Do you love the look and feel of a nice, large shawl but hate trying to keep it up over your shoulders? An L-Shaped shawl is a wonderful solution.
The unique shape of these shawls makes for a wonderful draping effect over the shoulders and down the front while the large point completely covers the back. Leave the front panels hanging loose or throw one (or both) up and over the shoulder for added warmth.
These shawls are a single, woven piece of material - not two pieces of fabric sewn together. This feature adds to the flow of the design and eliminates any uncomfortable seams.
