Limited Edition 60th Anniversary Tote from Britex Fabrics

These limited edition canvas totes were created and hand-screen printed for Britex fabrics by a local designer in foggy San Francisco. Our natural tote has our 60th anniversary logo on one side, and the iconic Britex logo on the other side. Want a great gift giving idea? Instead of a stocking, give something people can use, and stuff a beautiful Britex Fabrics canvas tote with meaningful goodies such as handmade, home-baked and locally crafted gifts. Size: a hunky 14” by 16”

Glorious Butterfly Tote – Constance


Constance lives in the beauteous Blue Ridge Mountains in North Carolina, and made a charming tote from fabric purchased from Britex Fabrics. We love the stunning over-sized butterfly printed linen, and the way she picked up the papillon wing color in the muted green of the straps and trim. This mid-weight home decorating linen is found on Britex Fabrics 2nd floor.

Chic Black Linen Summer Bag – Nathalie


Nathalie from mais pourquoi tu brodes made this charming handbag from Britex Fabric and notions. The supply list for this classy tote includes black linen, brown silk, cord-wrapped teardrop trim, and sheer polka-dotted ribbon. This bag would be a perfect accessory for a simple black linen shift, bare legs, a wide-brimmed black straw hat, and Italian strappy bronze sandals. The dangly teardrop trim is found on Britex’s 3rd floor ($19.95/yard), and the heavy-weight linen on the 2nd floor (55’ wide/$45/yard).
