This is a beautiful Erda handbag made in Maine, somewhere in the middle of an alfalfa field!
I acquired it years ago from a couple of hitchhikers who stopped by my shop in Eastern Oregon. They were on their way to the annual hippie fest in Eugene. They fell in love with a hat I had and I told them to take it. It was then that I was given this beautiful bag as a trade!
The name "Erda" is an ancient goddess of seasons and productivity, pretty much depicting the creative spirit and environment where they are made.
The bag features interesting shapes in boldly printed fabrics. It zips at the top for a flap style closure. Inside is leather and it has a zipper compartment on it's own.
The leather strap converts to a backpack strap, and a mini backpack you have!
In excellent condition. It measures 10" x 11".
