Nostalgic images of the Dutch must have been popular 50 or so years ago, because I’ve started noticing vintage items adorned with Dutch boys and girls – or with windmills – everywhere lately. I found this sweet little envelope-style cross-stitched bag recently and have just added it to my vintage etsy store.
I shipped out a few orders this morning. Because I only sell things I like, I have momentary pangs of regret every time I sell a vintage item. But then I recover and happily send the item off to its new owner. Out with the old, in with the new-ish. Or so they say.
Bag available here.

this is a HB-Henriot’ pattern, isn’t it? The traditionnal wear looks like Breton old fashion costume, the Quimper one I think.
Clairette- I believe you are right. I looked up the pattern and found this: http://www.henriotboutique.com/collectionhenriot-c-172.html. All this time I’d thought it was Dutch because of the shoe style. Thanks for the information!
