Baba Studio Prague



We interrupt this blog to recommend a vendor. Etsy seller Baba Studio Prague has absolutely gorgeous bags, from tarot deck-size to messenger bag size, with gorgeous printed artworks.

I've appreciated their work for a while, but I especially appreciate that they're starting to slowly phase in some Pre-Raphaelite artists as well as their standard Golden Age fairy tale illustrators and Mucha.

Those are so beautiful! I love the creative ways people find to recycle Pre-Raphaelite designs.

Love all of those! Very similar to what I offer in my store (great minds think alike, I guess ;).

Thanks so much for the mention. I really appreciate it, it's brilliant of you.

Amanda, I'm glad to have seen your lovely shop, which I hadn't come across before. We've in fact been making printed bags for two years now - and began the Pre-Raphs because of this thread many months ago where they were repeatedly requested:

It just takes us time though to find good enough images that are not in copyright and then to restore them and recolour so that they print true and vividly on fabric.

But, I think our technique and yours are quite different in any case - which is all to the good. Viva la difference and you can't have too many pre-Raph bags I say :)

My pleasure! My friend, Jen Parrish, recently posted on LiveJournal simply bursting about how much she loves her bag she got from your store. I resolve that one day I will have one of my own as well (smile)

I think what strikes me the most about your bags is the wonderful balance you strike...the quality is very very high, and the images are definitely the focal point :)
