This seasons tote-bags

By spotogspindel | June 5, 2015

Two new tote-bags are here! Both sewn in heavy cotton fabric, and the print is of my art. The government has induced a fee on plastic bags here, so using textile tote-bags when we go shopping is good for both the environment and the wallet.


The green bag has it´s main motif from Hespriholmen, a very small island in the south-western part of Bømlo, where there was  continuous mining activity for over 6000 years! This was back in the stone-age, and they extracted a very hard stone, which they used for tools, like the axes on the bottom of the bag.


Where the ancient slopes of

naked rock patiently listens

to the seagulls wailing

 – this is where my soul is sailing


The second bag is is warm orange colors, with the sun setting over three other islands (of the 1004 islands here). The bags will be sold at Marinaden. Or you can contact me directly.


Where the bare rock-faces

whisper secrets in your ear,

– this is where the dusks

are crisp and clear
