Jane Small Backpack – Orange Daisy Fabric


Sallyann’s Handmade Bags are beautifully made handbags and messenger bags created from unique rainproof fabrics and recycled jeans

  • handmade in Ireland
  • customisation available
  • suitable for vegans and vegetarians
  • timeless and practical designs to last

Each bag is unique because only one bag can be cut from each pair of jeans. I use as much of the jeans as I can in my manufacturing. The belt loops are used to attach the key clips inside the handbags, and the zips from the jeans are recycled into coin purses, using up the offcuts of the outer fabrics in the process.

Some people like the additional security of a zip pocket on the inside of their handbag, and it is always a useful extra. If you would like to add in a zip pocket, that is easily done! Simply click to add in an Inside Zip Pocket when you order.

The outer fabrics are my designs based on the beautiful wildflowers that grow locally around West Clare.



Two years in the making! Here is the Jane Small Backpack.  This is a really cute backpack, designed to fit comfortably on your back.  It is lightweight, yet strong, sturdy and long lasting, like all my handbags.

It can happily accommodate a novel, iPad (or other tablet device!), bottle of water and all your bits in the main body of the backpack, which has a patch pocket and a key clip inside too.

The outside is made from my own rainproof fabric and printed with gorgeous Orange Daisy fabric.  The outside front has a recycled jeans pocket sewn on to it, which is very handy for car park tickets, sunglasses or just to look rather beautiful.

The back of the backpack has a clever zip pocket sewn into it, for security, so that you can keep valuables in this if you’re worried that someone might dip into the main body of your backpack, which is often a concern for backpack owners.

The straps are 2.5cm wide and made from webbing which will be comfortable to wear and wide enough to spread the weight of whatever it is you are carrying.  There is a small loop at the top of the bag to lift it  up like a handbag when required.

The bag is lined with recycled jeans, meaning that every bag is unique, because it is impossible for me to cut more than one Jane Small Backpack from a pair of jeans, and for that added touch of individuality, the recycled pocket on the front is always a one off.

Internal measurements of the base are 18cm x 8cm, and the bag tapers to a zip top. It is 30cm in height internally.  External measurements are 20cm x 10cm, height 30cm.  All measurements are approximate, given that each bag is individually made and variations naturally occur.
