Our Kitbags contain the key pieces you need to make a beautiful tote bag. This spacious everyday bag comes with stylish giant eyelets that just clip together, metal rivets to hold your straps in place, a zippered matching purse that clips and unclips from the inside of the bag. It is fully lined, as is the purse, and has a neat Kitbag embroidered label to complete it. You can customise every one you make by choosing your own back, facing and interior fabrics.
