Cathy Chown

We have some great new handmade silk purses by Toronto artist, Cathy Chown. Cathy's purses and eyeglass cases are inspired by artists of the past and present and Cathy's own whimsical interpretations of nature. Here you can see her hand painted and embroidered Picasso purse and eyeglass case as well as one of her women in art bags.


  1. on a recent trip to the museum, i purchased a black and burgundy bag with picasso print and klimpt print. With little wear, purse in perfect condition, the plastic peeling back and half of the beads and trinkets have fallen off. On close inspection, beads still on the purse had one strand of thread only. This is the obvious reason the beads fell off.

    I was very dissapointed when on holidays from australia, I found such a beautiful souvenoir from the museum shop, now after very little use, unless I attempt to remake the purse, it is no longer the beautiful accessary I purchased it for.
