East Vancouver's bold iconic cross proudly stands along Clark Drive - the street where I spent most of my childhood growing up. 

 

After taking the photograph of the East Van monument a plethora of happy, and not so happy memories struck me about my time growing up in East Vancouver, a neighbourhood once known for being the "wrong side" of the tracks.

 

East Van is home to me. It is where I was born as was my father, grandmother and great grandmother, and I am sure East Van is home to many of you as well. 

 

Each bag contains an image taken by me, which is printed onto canvas fabric. I use durable waterproof, satin fabric for the inside lining and pocket. All of the bags I make have leather straps held in place with industrial copper rivets.

Dimensions: Length 18" X Width 13.5" Straps approximately 28"

Canvas Fabric:
100% plain weave polyester fabric medium-heavy weight
Machine wash cold water with a phosphate free detergent
Machine dry on medium heat
Iron on synthetic setting
May shrink after the first wash, to prevent shrinkage hang to dry
