Grichels Bags and Cases – A Wrinkle in Reality

on January 24, 2011 6:30 am

Like most Etsy shops, Grichels sells limited edition handmade items.  Grichels has modified a lighted Sony Pocket Reader case by applying a piece of leather that has been wrinkled and combined with a pair of eyes to form Gonart, the reader guardian.  The Sony reader cover is $76.  The shop also offers a variety of bags, leather hair accessories, even earmuffs, all with these ethereal creature designs.

    Definitely creepy. It reminds me of the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis from the Evil Dead trilogy…

    @FluidDruid Wow! I’m disappointed! With your name, I thought for sure you’d see a tree spirit or something in that wizened face! ;o)

    I love it. I see wisdom, curiousity, kindness, and just a hint of mischief in the face.

    It’s good to see that they are still around. I have a framed piece on my wall with three faces and a vase. I bought them years ago when they had a booth set up at the renaissance fair outside of Chicago. My girlfriend thinks they are creepy but guess what, they are on display anyway.

    @Tracie This is an online shop, and I’m not sure they have a retail location other than through Etsy. They do ship internationally, though.

    Wait! Wait! Wait everybody!!!!
    I t was serendipitous that I had a few minutes with a girl while in Denver just this past weekend, who happenned to be WEARING one of these fantastic bags! My opinion is that I must get one!

    It was a friendly looking “tree “. So artistic! Viola! I’ll be looking to purchase one soon. (Depending on affordability )
    And predicting the wear, it may be the last bag I’ll ever need. Honest!! {U c? I’m 66 soon and still ‘hip’}

    And, I’ll be proud of my unique style.

    With love. Mo
