The Bleeding Heart bag

Handsewn wearable art handbag, shaped like an anatomical heart. 

Size: Medium, 25 x 20 x 7 cm 

Closes with a zipper, one single large inner space with an extra pocket for your phone. Will fit your phone, a small wallet and some essentials. 

Please note that I think that the bag seem larger in the pictures than in real life. I think this because the mannequin is a size 36, and I had to angle the phone to get good pictures.

The shoulder chain can be exchanged for versitility.

Colours & materials:

Shades of red, wine, black and blue. Created with vintage fabrics of different textures, sequins and crystal rhinestones chains. 

Sustainability footprint:

100% repurposed materials 



When I create I usually work on multiple pieces at once. I usuall start with two or three pieces, similar in idea but with different vibes.


How it begun:

I begun working on my first anatomical heart bag when the war in Ukraine started. I was in shock, devastated and feeling as if my heart had been ripped out of my body. Memories of what the persons I love the most, my mother and grand mother, experienced during the second world war came crashing down. 

I needed to process the madness of this world, and creating a ripped out heart which I could wear just made sense.

In my mind, these bags became a reminder that in the middle of the horrors mankind are capable of, there is always a spark of beauty, creativity, persistance and hope.
