Discerning gardeners can garden in style, with this gorgeous-but-very-practical tool bag. This charming gardening accessory very much reflects Sophie’s signature style – classic, but with subtle contemporary design touches.
This stylish tool bag is the perfect size for gardening – not too heavy and bulky to carry as you garden, even when fully loaded. A large central compartment easily holds all the larger items, while exterior pockets are useful for those favourite indispensable hand tools. An elastic restraining strap above the pockets keep tools firmly in position with no risk of dropping out as you move around the garden. Riveted handles in contrast cotton webbing add a touch of design style as well as strength. The whole tool bag is easy to keep looking smart, with a wipe-clean coating and mesh inserts in the pockets for easy cleaning.
The timeless stripe design of the 100% cotton heavyweight ticking fabric is an enduring favourite, perfectly complementing the unfussy, practical design of this handy tool bag.
