Faroese Eco Felted Wool Laptop Tote
Classic, practical and beautiful, this felted wool laptop bag is first knit and then felted from organic Faroese Wool in varying stripes of cream, gray, charchoal, light brown and dark brown. The wool comes from the Faroe Islands, which lie northwest of Scotland and halfway between Iceland and Norway. Over 700 years ago Irish monks brought sheep to the Faroe Islands where they roam free and outnumber their human counterparts 2 to 1. The colors of the wool used to knit this piece are the natural colors of the sheep - no dyes added. Sheep have been sustainably raised on the Faroe Islands since 1298.
The bag was created in a number of thick and thin stripes in cream, gray, charcoal, light brown and dark brown. It has been lined in a beautiful deep orange vintage wool fabric that contrasts nicely with the rest of the tote (lining of this type is limited in quantity and subject to change). The inner portions of the bag are divided into 1 large pocket that spans the width of the bag, and 2 smaller pockets.
I've chosen a sturdy Belgium jacquard ribbon in chevroned deep chocolate and tan for the strapping. You can choose either cotton twill, nylon/polypro or jacquard ribbon to reinforce the bag. It is fully adjustable, so can be carried over the shoulder or worn across the body. If you would like an alternate strapping, please indicated when ordering.
The bag closes with a parachute buckle. If you would like a hidden magnetic snap instead, please let me know when ordering.
