Item of the Day: Skinny laMinx Tote

Heather Moore of Skinny laMinx, calls her latest patterned creation ''the Alexander Sack' and is best used for sacking Alexanders, or if you don't know any, for grocery shopping.

It's a very on-trend cotton tote, often spotted in European grocers, but the African animal pattern keeps the design fresh.  As do the local products which Heather fills her bag with. Heather, we also have a weakness for Marmite!

Skinny laMinx is a local label making quirky patterned things, including upholstery fabrics, cushions, wallpaper and even clothes.  Heather's also a fabulous illustrator - have a look at what our very own editor, Naomi Larkin, thought of this trend-setter's papercut-outs here.

Heather's latest tote retails at R295. Pop in at Skinny laMinx in Portswood Center on Somerset Road, Green Point, or order yours online from her online shop or from the etsy store.
