The Purple Bag by Olympia Le Tan


This minaudière was especially designed for Purple. It is part of a series of Books You Can’t Read made by Olympia Le-Tan. It was entirely handmade with love in France. The felt appliqué and silk thread embroidery was inspired by the cover of John Wyllie’s 1950s novel Johnny Purple (the story of a Royal Air Force squadron stationed in Sumatra in the forties). It is lined with liberty print and mounted on a brass frame. Each piece numbered on the back.
