Fi Symons Canbags

Fi Symons Canbags

As well as being a potter, mum also has an industrial sewing machine and makes very cool and robust bags from sail cloth which have been brilliant wedding presents for my friends and very popular presents for men who have everything!  She is given unwanted sails from contacts up and down the country and she uses a splash of colourful spinikar sail to make each one completely unique. The printed fabric you can see in the shopping bags and large stash bags (popular for laundry or lego!), depends on what she has in stock which she will discuss with you by email when your order has been placed.


Initials (£5/letter) are very popular, particularly for childrens 'sleepover' bags.


Prices are below, but when you place an order you will only pay £1 per Canbag to 'log each item'. Mum will then email you within 24hours (your email address will be linked to your order) to discuss colour schemes, which patterned fabric she has in stock for the stash bags, personalisation and POSTAGE (due to their bulky nature, size and weight of the parcel varies hugely!). Mum will let you know the FINAL COST (deducting the amount already paid) for you to pay her directly through PayPal or Bank transfer.


Roll Bags

As these bags are 'squashy', they're great for squeezing into the boot or under your feet in the car. Available in 3 sizes:
