I wanted announce that after a long hiatus, the indie brand Morrigan New York has released a new item! It's our very first professionally produced handbag, in the theme of Herman Melville's novel Moby Dick, after our most recent print. I hope you enjoy it!
The zipper pull is a black minnow!
The bag is 100% vegan, and made of high-quality vinyl. It has a bright red lining, and there's a zippered pocket inside for your small items.
It's a soft-sided, mid-sized bag, so there's enough room for your wallet, phone, keys, sunglasses, as well as a small notebook or book. The dimensions of the bag are 16" x 6" (from head to tail horizontally, and from top-to-bottom of the head vertically -- note that there's some negative space in those measurements, as it's whale-shaped!).
We built a cute set for photographs:
We decided on this photo of the whale destroying a ship! ; ) He's cute, but fearsome!
We originally created only a handful of the handmade version of this bag in 2011 as a giveaway prize for a raffle, but it was not available for sale. Since many people seemed to like it, we thought it might be nice to produce a professional version of it. The new whale bag is made by the skilled craftspeople of a small, woman-owned and ethical factory that we work with.
Thanks for looking! I hope you enjoy our new item!
