Bag your own Stripy Horse!

Fans of the Stripy Horse books can now get their hands on a range of limited edition canvas bags printed with their favourite character!

Each bag comes in two sizes: small totes for little ones and large shoppers for adults.

For budding artists, there’s also a design your own bag set inspired by our November workshops in Italy.

The tote bags were designed specially for Coccinelle by Karen, and sales aid the Italian charity Magica Cleme who provide entertainment and fun days out for the families of children with cancer.

You can buy online from Coccinelle here, or at the Coccinelle shop on Kings Road in London.

Molto Bene, Stripy Horse!

Following a similar event in London a few months ago, the Stripy Horse picture books were chosen as the theme for a series of children’s bag drawing workshops in Milan. The events were organised by Coccinelle in aid of the Italian children’s charity Magica Cleme

Here’s Karen outside the shop…

Judging by the quality of the final bag designs she had better watch out…

We had an amazing time, so a BIG BIG thanks to everyone involved!

As well as finding out just how good the pastries are in Milan we also learnt that the Italian for sausage dog is ‘Bassotto’. Here’s a bassotto that came along to one of the workshops – he wasn’t quite as long as Hermann, but he was very smartly dressed…
