CorkshoesWe love the simple geometric details on these handcrafted totes. These market totes are sold under the Japanese creator and brand name, Corkshoes. The bags are lined with linen cloth and includes an inside pocket. They also make a few matching pouches. Found them at online handmade sites, Iichi and Tetote Market.

She paints the environment of the area showing a strong influence of the Aboriginal culture with flattened perspective, rich coloration and complex repetition.
