Rivoli Girls Tote Bag
Rivoli Girls is the name of this fabric and it makes for a tote bag that is oh so chic! Named after the Rue du Rivoli in Paris, a street that runs parallel to
the Seine and stretches from the Tuileries Gardens all the way to the Marais. Be is inspired by this colorful route that
reveals everything from the exquisite to the bohemian. Like these Rivoli Girls, you can
grab your hat and bag and make your way, leaving a trail of leaves and flowers
This tote bag measures 14" wide by 16" tall (excludes handle). The handle has an 8" drop - perfect for hanging over your arm, or over your shoulder. The lining and handle are made from Home Decor weight cotton sateen by designer Denyse Schmidt. Rivoli Girl is by Alexander Henry. This one is a gift for young Miss Clara to use for a library book bag (or for hauling around treasures!) But you can buy your own in my Etsy Shop!
