heba bags


Heba came from Egypt - we met in Salzburg at the Summer Academy.

Just before leaving, she gave me as a fairwell, her mother-of-pearl necklace, which she wore everyday. In return, I made for her, out of the bits of fabric that I had with me, a small bag with pictures of Cape Town on it. It was the first of many such bags.
The bags are often made of wool fabric, but also out of recycled jackets or trouser legs.
