  65. Yvonne Cornell says:

    If only desire of it
    Makes you quite mad enough
    Never to tire of it,
    Makes you hold all other things tawdry
    and cheap for it
    If dogged and grim you besiege and beset it,
    You’ll get it!
    - poem by berton braley, desire by yvonne cornell

  106. Justyna says:

    I’d be honoured to carry one of those beautiful creations.
    Not only do I love Hanna Konola’s work but also I’m taken with this particular design.
    It reminds me of colourful fans which bring to mind the chinese fan dance.
    The dancers moving in unison with the darkness of the night as stage..
    I’d been living in China for a few years and it was a magical time during which I got engaged and married, got pregnant and my child was born in Shanghai..
    I don’t think I’ll be ever coming back so the bag will always be a reminder of the fondest memories..

  107. Marie-Annick says:

    The bag would be great for my yarn and crochet projects, but the pen case would be a nice holder of my crochet needles as well.

    Merry christmas, Elisabeth!

  110. Zsofia says:

    Because I’m so bored of my recent bag!

  111. Klarast says:

    wow så fint!

    jag har haft en länk till hannas hemsida bland mina internetfavoriter i evigheter.

    men det skulle vara fantastiskt att ha en väska med hennes mönster också. det känns som att inspirationen liksom överförs bättre till en om man kan titta på illustrationerna hela tiden. till exempel när man går till hemköp och handlar. eller promenerar till skolan. eller bara har väskan hängande på en krok, nästan som en tavla.


  112. Ann Hidayat says:

    I’d love to win because these bags are the epitome of mod design meets functional chic:) love the pops of colours on the black background:)

  113. julie adore says:

    very happy :)))
    TY all!
