Old book + Fabric - Pages = Pocket Books by Noelle Hamlyn


Have you ever been in search of the perfect book bag? Well, look no further because pocket books are here.

Created by textile artist, Noelle Hamlyn pocket books are small handbags created by vintage books. After removing the pages of household books such as Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit and Tin Tin, Noelle replaces the pages with vintage fabrics linings and recycled belt straps that are used as handles.

Each fabric lining is specially chosen to fit the feeling of each book and the belt straps convert from over-the-shoulder to across the chest. These bags are the perfect accessory for a night at the movies or a visit to the museum. If you are interested in learning more about Hamlyn's unique purses, visit her website at http://www.noellehamlyn.com/.
