cross stitched bag Graphite


RIOLIS continues to please the most dedicated and creative needlewomen responding to their fashion needs. Needlework kit 1441 AC Evening bag Graphite was created by our designers who offer their view on the most interesting trends of high fashion. In one of our news we have already wrote that unusual handbags with cross stitch have occupied the imagination of many fashion designers this year.


Connection between needlework and such beloved and necessary for every woman accessory as a bag is a fact in fashion history. After all, the passion for cross stitch was one of the reasons why small handbags that then were called reticules became popular in the salons of high society. During the discussions of latest news ladies often embroidered, so the handbag that was made by the needlewoman herself or was custom made included needles, the piece that was being embroidered, hoop and other needed materials. Then every lady’s handbag was unique and was able to tell a lot about its owner – her character and hobbies. The bags were decorated richly with embroidery and beads, and were made of lace or fabric.


Time brings some changes in woman’s demands for functionality and appearance of accessories. Modern women of large cities often choose leather companion of mass production. However, the beautiful side of humanity is largely open to the world, and each one seeks to tell others something about themselves stressing their individuality of external appearance.

Therefore, the handbag with cross stitch, and even made by yourself, today has become a manifestation of free thinking, awareness of current fashion trends and the possibility to boast about your skills in beloved and very feminine hobby.

The style and unusualness of Evening Bag Graphite does not change its functionality. This bag has universal form. You can take it both to the office and to an evening event. It perfectly fits to active lifestyle of a modern woman. Monochrome embroidered ornament adds interesting nuance to the image. To interpret this nuance in your outfit is an inspiring challenge and an opportunity to show your taste.
