Kassandra and the white cats bag
This small handbag is just what you need to walk around during your summer. Small but roomy enough to take with you all the necessary! The Kassandra bag measures roughly 22 x 37 cm (don’t forget it’s handmade!) and has a handy outside pocket.
Our patterns are printed on a 100% polyester canvas that makes the bags strong and steady. All our bags are fully lined with a 100% cotton fabric.
We ship them in a cute storage bag in cotton (our way to avoid plastic packaging!). You can use it either to keep your bag out of the daily dust, either to store other stuff, or even put it inside your bag like a closed pouch!
Let’s all have happy days strolling in the sun!
DESIGNED & MADE BY HAND IN ATHENS WITH
Cassandra or Kassandra (in Greek Κασσάνδρα) was a princess of Troy, daughter of the King Priam and Queen Hecuba. She was a beautiful woman with curly brown hair and dark eyes. She was given the gift of prophecy by Apollo, but after receiving it she broke her promise to give herself to him. To punish her, Apollo cursed her that though she would see the futur, nobody would never believes her predictions. In modern usage Cassandra metaphor (Cassandra “syndrome”, “complex”, phenomenon” …) is used when someone’s valid warnings or concerns are disbelieved by others.
The Aegean cat is the only breed in Greece and is considered to be the oldest domesticated one. These cats have a bicolour or tricolour coat with one of the colour being most of the time white. Aegean cats have a big affinity for water and fishing. That’s why you often meet them amongst ports and seashores.
In many cultures cats are meant to have multiple lives. In Greece it is said that they have seven lives!
