New Guinea Scatter Shell Bag

New Guinea Scatter Shell Bag

Braided Bag decorated with Shells

For years I have collected antiquities and tribal treasures on my travels and I love the stories that they all must tell. I often prefer them on my walls to a painting. These items are all totally unique and come from Papua New Guinea. My friend Peter has travelled the world and I am very lucky that he is sharing some of this precious collection with us.


A unique bag as statement interior piece or a talking point if worn. This bag has stories to tell, the origins of the shells from the beaches of Papua New Guinea and the hours and hours of labour not only to hand knit the base but the love and hours which have gone into applying all the beautiful shells.

The bag measures approximately 32cm x 32cm and the woven twisted cord strap hangs about 136cm.
