Embroidered Tote Bag - Latitudes of Longing


We’ve teamed up with textile artist Alysha to bring you this collection of limited edition Moon tote bags. Taking inspiration from the titles on our shelves, Alysha painstakingly embroidered each bag by hand to produce a design that is one of a kind. Every tote bag has been paired with a book that was specially selected by our book curator.

A message from Alysha: These totes are all one of and 100% hand embroidered with love. Each tote was specially designed, planned and crafted and every stitch carefully considered. I hope you enjoy these totes as much as I enjoyed creating them for you!

A spellbinding work of literature, Latitudes of Longing follows the interconnected lives of characters searching for true intimacy. The novel sweeps across India, from an island, to a valley, a city, and a snow desert to tell a love story of epic proportions. Richly imaginative and wryly perceptive, it offers a soaring view of humanity: our beauty and ugliness, our capacity to harm and love each other, and our mysterious and sacred relationship with nature.

“When Girija Prasad first came here, he arrived believing in halftruths like “no man is an island.” It has taken him a year to realise that no island is an island either. It is part of a greater geological pattern that connects all the lands and oceans of the world.”
