No name travel pouch

I haven’t really decided on a “name” (MaiTribe bag?) for my upcoming most frequent travel companion. So, I’ve decided to just call it No name travel pouch.

This Silk Noil travel pouch measures 23.5 cm x 20 cm and has 7 pockets! The pockets are lined and it has 2 olive green zippers. A small-link bronze coloured chain makes the strap. This pouch is big enough for an ipad Air and can hold all those daily items needed for arrival at the airport and for a day of touring.

This little pouch  is made from various pieces of my naturally dyed shibori Silk Noil samples

Dyes I’ve used for this item include: walnut, madder, buckthorn, sumac and henna. Some of the shibori techniques used for this pouch are Nui, katano and itajime.

My friend Colleen came to spend a few days with us. After looking over the pattern with me, she asked “where is your sewing machine”! Thus, this travel pouch was born!
It will be featured in many of my travel stops along the way. I have visions of photo ops for this little pouch. I’m off to India (again).

Additionally, I will visit Sri Lanka (formerly Ceylon). This is a country I’ve wanted to visit since childhood, after seeing some amazing pics in National Geographic, of the lush, tea plantations.

The Taj Mahal! Exotic beaches and restaurant settings! My Ellie friends! Delhi, Colombo, maybe even hanging out in a tea plantation in Sri Lanka or in a local family kitchen! The possibilities really are endless.
