tuesday giveaway!






There is a talented designer in Melbourne called Emily Wright (read her Daily Imprint interview here) who comes from a fine arts background but is now a textile designer for her label Nancybird, which had its genesis in 2001. Most of her wares are handprinted in Melbourne and she sources custom-made leathers in Italy. There is a distinct Australian influence in Emily's work, such as the bag she's offering Daily Imprint readers the chance to win. It features a native Australian daisy print.

Nancybird is offering one Daily Imprint reader the chance to win
1 x West Bag in Red, valued at $450!

For your chance to win, visit the Nancybird website and leave a comment below. A winner will be selected at random after comments close at midnight on Monday 12 December. Don't forget to check back to see if you are the winner. (If the winner does not respond within two weeks of being notified, the prize will be redrawn.)

Thank you to everyone for taking part. A winner has been drawn:
#52 loulou

Congratulations!!! Please contact me as soon as possible so I can organise delivery of the prize.

I love the texture of Nancybird bags and how each one is slightly different. And of course because Offsprings Nina has one!

LizF said...

I recently fell in love with Nancybird after seeing a wallet on a local garage sale site. Why anyone would want to sell is beyond me, but I am most grateful they did! I love the feel and have hence stopped using a handbag so I can carry it! :-)

This bag is just what I need - red is my fave colour and my nancybird bag is so well loved and over-used that the lining is worn out - could never ask for a better bag than a nancybird - it would "make my day"

I have been a Nancybird lover for a few years now! With my second baby due in 3 weeks, this bag would be the PERFECT (and most beautiful!) nappy bag!

Good luck everyone!

Every nancybird creation is an inspiration. No matter the item - bag, wallet, belt - these are always designed and created with a sense of style, individuality and beauty.

I can never have enough of nancybird!

Karen said...

Gorgeous bag! Thank you for the chance to win. I enjoyed checking out the nancybird website and blog too, especially the wonderful store window display in Tasmania. (I feel like someone from the other hemisphere can't get away with calling it Tassie!)

Robyn Thorpe said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Nancybird designs, and when I'm wearing, people always comment, so I send to the website; Emily is such a talented artisan and should be commended in some way for her brilliance in original design! I love seeing what each new range brings x

Narelle Hand said...

ODE TO FANCY NANCY.....
Nancybird, oh how I love thee,
I have professed my love for you before,
but you sit there with your soft luscious leather,
only to ignore.
I have adored you fabrics
and blown you kisses from afar,
Only to be told by the shop owner,
'get off my front window, your bizarre!'
I have tried to win you multiple times,
But geeh, even I'm sick of my tragic rhymes! X x x

Laurat said...

Huge fan ever since my sister bought me a red Nancybird clutch bag. I now have a growing collection (even have my partner onto the Uncle Ned range)...but there is always room for one more :)

ChristineD said...

So beautiful and so generous. I love Nancy Bird

Little River Tanya said...

A cry was heard across the net
the blogosphere went wild,
Daily Imprint and Nancybird
had hatched a new brainchild.

On Facebook pages near and far
the word was passed along,
a Red West bag it can be had
you can get it for a song.

I trawled the site with pleasure
the bag seemed 'made to measure,'
I wrote a note, to score the tote
the greatest prize...... the treasure.

Oh Red West bag
you are so nice,
if I had the cash
I'd pay any price.

The softest of soft leather
the beauty of the design.
the colour, the cut, the size, the shape
oh why cant you be mine?

Natalie Walton and Emily Wright
you've certainly caused a sensation,
such a lovely chance you've offered us
so thanks for the collaboration.

Meghan said...

I have always adored the fabrics on Nancybird bags. This beauty is no exception!

Maggiemay18 said...

Would love love love this bag! My old nancy is looking a little sad and it would be amazing to have a sister for her to help carry the load :)

Lexilou said...

Beautiful products that will never go out of fashion and so well made!

Lezac said...

yes please Nancy!!!

BelindaBella said...

Just lovely. And so is that awesome 'Painting' scarf. Love your work and fingers crossed. Thanks for the opportunity!

Kat said...

This bag is gorgeous. I have a Nancybird purse that is just fabulous. Such great quality and a thousand slots for cards. Would love this handbag to add to my collection!

kde said...

I love Emily Wright

AN said...

Oh Nancybird, how I lust after your sensual leather and stunning prints... your website is like porn to me, I look at it wistfully so often. I would be priveleged to carry such a stunning bag with me to my new job in January. Oh how I HOPE I win this beautiful NB bag! xoxo

leah said...

i have loved nancybird for a while now. this bag is beautiful. i have my fingers crossed! xxx

cerebral e said...

Nancybird is one of my favourite labels! Being unable to justify buying yet another handbag, my most recent purchase was a gorgeous scarf.

elissa at iinet dot net dot au

gemma said...

This bag would be the perfect antidote to my grumpy grumpy mood of the last week after having my house robbed! The gorgeous red design would help put a summer skip back in my step, which I am working on reviving! X

Bella said...

What a perfect weekender and everyday uni bag! I also have my eye on the nougat backpack, yum! Emily please keep creating these gems, at least until I finish uni and can afford to buy the Marlon bag in every colour!

Gem said...

That is the most beautiful bag, absolutely stunning.

ssquared said...

Great gallery of bags and scarfs. I only discovered the wonder of scarfs this year and now they are my must have accessory (and so affordable too). A NancyBird bag would be great for fitting all my lesson plans and stuff for teaching. So, onto the Xmas wish list - but will check out supplier in Ashburton very soon.

deb davidson said...

I am loving this bag. Pleeeease!

Arishma Narayan said...

I love Nancybird bags! My bank account would prefer it if I loved them a wee bit less. This bag is just gorgeous... I am keeping my fingers crossed!

Deb said...

I'm loving this bag. Please!

Kath said...

Wow the big Red Westie, I have had my eye on this beauty for some time now and was hoping to place it on my Xmas wish list, but to win it would be even more special. Fingers crossed I hope Santa is nice! I love Nancy Bird products, always full of surprises.....

The Daemon said...

It is just so beautiful... and red is the only colour handbag I don't have yet... I already have a lovely Nancybird wallet (the brown one with the boats on it) and handbag (the grey-brown one with the flower motifs), and a friend gave me a sweet little yellow coinpurse - a red handbag would fit in so well into my Nancybird family... wishing... and hoping...

siilenti said...

I love the color of that bag, it's perfect!

Brenda Spielmann said...

Lisa said...

Adorable!!!!!!!! I would loooooove love looooove to use this bag for work! Colour totally matches CFA (Country Fire Authority) uniform and would go so well travelling across Victoria for my council meetings. I love Nancybird for the genuine leather quality and artistic design and fabrics. I love the practicality (soft leather, soft edges) and versatility with any clothes. Would LOVE to bring the art, design and fashion into CFA everyday wear! And I love working for CFA!!! I have been there four years and love how we get to serve the community!!! :-)

To die for! Spotted a Nancybird bag some years ago and have been saving for one ever since! Nancybird bags are practical, stylish and so beautifully made using quality materials.Am thinking I could even fit nappies and wipes in there when I take my 3 young children out and about. Would love this bag so much!
