For an affordable take on the 1970s look, check out the Tapestry bag range, new in at Paperchase.
The large woven cotton sheeting tapestry features a bright folkloric pattern with birds, tree and flowers. It can be put to variety of uses: hung on the wall; used as a chair covering or as throw for your bed. It measures 100 inches long by 84 inches wide and would fit a Queen-sized bed if that is how you want to use it.
It costs $39 from Urban Outfitters.
Embroidery, tapestry and needlepointed fabrics were not long ago confined to the houses of our grandparents and the back room of the charity shop. Taking back the best parts of these often-forgotten design techniques, retro fashion has embraced it in pieces like this Tapestry Bag from New Look.
The classic shape of the handbag, including a clip frame and loose metallic strap, lets the intricate fabric shine against its simplicity. With a floral tapestry design, the bag has added texture along with a truly vintage look that's easy to pair with a wide variety of styles.
It's available now from New Look for a discounted price of just £9.74.
