River Rock Handbag

P1230313

This ”River Rock” bag is an unique purse, sculptured and designed by hand. It looks like a heavy, wet river rock, but it is not heavier than any ordinary purse. Actually, it is less than a kilo in weight.

P1230266

The technique is what we’re proud of, as we have invented it ourselves. It’s close to paper mashing, but it is a much more complicated process. Different materials have been used on many different layers. All this led to the creation of a very light, but “heavy” looking result, which is quite realistic – a “stone” bag that any lady could carry around on her shoulder without effort.

P1230315

It is durable and water resistant. The handbag has been fortified with textile and plaster during the process of creation, so that you can enjoy it for a very long time. It’s been covered with acrylic varnish, both inside and outside. Varnish helps protect the inner and outer surfaces from scratching. On the inside you will find a nice decoupage of colorful dots.

P1230312

The shutter is attached to the main body of the purse by a tough textile tape. The locker is plastic, durable and light. You can adjust the length of the handle according to your own preferences or you can replace it with another one of your choice. The handle is easy to remove and to put back on, but once attached it stays firm.

P1230314

The “River Rock” handbag is 27 centimeters high, 22 centimeters wide and 15 centimeters thick. You can easily put inside your smartphone, your keys, your wallet, plus some cosmetics and there will be plenty of space for a pocket size book in addition (or a reader). Everywhere you go with this bag, people’s attention will be drawn to it.

The Inspiration, the Challenge and the Results…

or how I started making “stone” bags:

P1220916

Several years ago (I don’t remember how many), I saw this “stone” bag on a shelf in a store in my hometown:

P1220918

I immediately fell in love with it and now it is my loyal companion everywhere I go – at home or abroad. It became an usual part of my attire, no matter of the season or the place. Friends and strangers never get tired asking me: “What is that? Where did you get it from? It’s incredible! Did you make it yourself?” Well, I didn’t. Plus, the shop that I bought it from, does no longer exist. 

P1220904

But the challenge was in the last question: “Did you make it yourself?” Couldn’t I try to make something similar? After my last trip to Santorini this summer I finally accepted the challenge.

P1220901

It is a complex, multi-layer process. Forms are sculptured by hand. Every “stone” bag I make is one of a kind, as there is no shape that I use. These are mini sculptures, made of many different materials. Actually, it is my very own production technique, invented especially for this purpose. It is very similar to paper mashing, but apart from paper and glue, I also use: textile, plaster, acrylic paint and water-based varnish. Here are the first results:

P1220900

They are hard as a stone (water resistant and durable, I might add), but not heavier than an ordinary leather purse. If you want one of these, use one of the contacts below. In case you have a specific desire for shape, color or other preferences –

We are open for new ideas.  🙂
