No,there are not two phrases I would have expected to use in the same sentence, either. But have a look at this little beauty:

6 up for...

So jingly! So ribbony! And yours for a mere £2,500. If that's a bit steep, have a look at the beribboned "Bess" clutch...a snip at £990.

Are there any other cases of the morris being used as fashion inspiration? I bet none were this pricey...

I must tell the lads and lassies in Ditchling Morris about this - they'll be going like hot cakes.

Indeed - I anticipate a run on them now word is out.

Damn I was going to get you one as a Xmas present.

Settle for this border morris bag instead?

And I meant to ask - what was the search term you used to get to that particular site?

"Morris handbags" perhaps?

Surely this is cheating! A true Morris bag has acquired its bells, ribbons and other attachments over years of collecting. Probably cost £2,500 in paying for weekends of dance, travel costs, kit, beer etc but every attachment a fond memory!

Dave, the link was e-mailed to me by a friend who thought I would be amused by it...

I like the ribbony bag. I think I'm going to make that. A vist to a couple of junk shops, a craft shop and some needle and thread should come in at well under £990 though...

Neuvo, you are right! Let us not be impressed by those who climb out of their Ferraris to line up for the latest in the Morris look.   If they don't make music, don't dance, don't hit sticks together, they are pathetic purchasers of vicarious thrills. I pity them.

By the way, did you notice the cover on the ad for Elle Magazine (2nd link)? The model has scraggly hair and laddered hose. Apparently if she looks incompetent her beauty is not so intimidating to those who must purchase their Morris charisma.

A likely story.

Does the bag come with a big stick for fighting off would be purse snatchers?

Somehow, I can't see the average purchaser even standing and watching a morris side, let alone going on a morris weekend...mind you, they'll be slinging the bags onto eBay in a few months time, once they're no longer this year's collection - bargain alert! (relatively speaking...)

How have they simulated the beer stains and do these come with separate compartments for blister plasters, hip flask, tankard etc?
