Tied with string

Airmail letters, picture postcards and parcels wrapped up with string. I saw these recently in a magazine and really liked them, so for a pretty posted gift you can open every day these purses and bags are from online store totally funky.

Oh, I love this ! I always had a passion for old postcards and stamps.... I love the old fashion AIR MAIL, I was so fascinated by it.As a child I used to get excited when one will come through our letter box ....

I love that pouch tied with actual string (along with a zipper). Such a great (and meta) travel bag!

Oh my gosh! These are so adorable! I love getting mail, it's a childhood joy carried over, so one of these would be the bees knees for me! So cute!

I think I saw the small purses featured in a weekend paper - they're just beautiful. I've been collecting stamps and envelopes for a while and keep wondering what to do with them. It's great to see some inspiration

i have to laugh because i just tried to send a parcel through the mail tied with string like the zip pouch in the lower left. the post lady looked at it and said "ohhhh pretty, but you have to take the string off dear or it will get caught in the sorting machine." love these.

nothing makes my day more than opening up the mailbox to find an Airmail Letter!

These are very cute and clever.

These are so cool! At first I didn't notice that they were pouches and purses.

I am definately going to buy one of those bag/purses. I really wanted the envelope purse paul smith did last season but it was around £200 so could not. Thanks for showing these =)
