Small Wash Bag/ Make Up Purse by Claire Armitage.
The Sky Flowers print design is part of the Meadow collection, which is about evoking a sense of time and place. These floral illustrations are inspired by Claire's time spent drawing near to her studio in Cornwall.
These 100% cotton canvas washbags make an ideal gift, or would make a practical and stylish addition to your wardrobe. The washbags measure 20 x 15cm and are the perfect size to fit all of your make up essentials. Alternatively they also make an ideal clutch bag, makeup bag, jewellery bag or pencil case. With a zip fastening, these bags are very durable.
Claire Armitage says,
"I create textiles and prints to capture a sense of place and invite an immersion into the wild beauty of West Cornwall’s landscape, flora and fauna; with its hidden woodlands, sweeping curves of moorland and coastlines where the Atlantic Ocean meets the skies.
I see my creative practice as constantly evolving, I gained my BA in Textiles at Goldsmiths in 2002. After graduating, I worked for ten years as a costume designer; I loved the sense of collaboration, working alongside dancers, choreographers and artistic directors, balancing functionality and aesthetics within my designs. My career as a costume designer fuelled my love of narrative and movement within fabric and eventually the call to develop the drawings in my sketchbooks led me to an MA in Textile Design at Falmouth from 2007 to 2009. It was after finishing my MA that I started my journey as a textile designer in 2011, which in turn led me to explore printmaking as an artform. Alongside my work as an artist and designer I have the privilege of supporting the next generation of creatives in my role as a visiting lecturer at Falmouth University and as a lecturer at Penwith College, which creates great opportunities for connections and collaboration."
