One marbled wood ring and bead

One marbled wood ring and bead

“I know the strap’s adjustable, but how exactly did that work again?”

Many of our Day Totes and some of our Market Totes feature a unique adjustable strap design.

The hardware consists of a pair of hand-marbled wooden rings and a matching wooden bead.

The bead keeps the knotted end of the fabric strap from escaping the ring.

The bead is held in place with a double knot.

To adjust the strap, work the knots free and slide the bead up (to shorten) or down (to lengthen).

Secure the bead in its new position with a fresh double knot. (And iron out the old knots’ wrinkles if you’re so inclined.)

Our Pocket Totes use a different system, but they’re adjustable too. Here, the key is a sliding knot tied in the cord on each side of the bag. (If your bag includes felted balls, the sliding knot is above the ball.)

To lengthen the satin cord on a pocket tote

Grasp the cord that attaches to one side of the bag and slide the knot away from the fabric. 

Repeat on the other side.
