This fabric is great for rain hats and bags it's a p.v.c. backed cotton in Charcoal grey I also have some in stone, raspberry and olive.
It's strong and showerproof so perfect for the u.k. island weather (rain) ! which we get frequently.
The handles in metalic leather make it soft to grip and it's edged and trimmed in a vintage petersham ribbon.
With a hard base it can take a little weight and the leather handles are lovely to hold.
