A stylish and unique handbag crafted by Matt Fothergill using RT bus moquette fabric with a leather trim. This handbag has a leather strap and press studs to fasten. Moquette is a particularly versatile and hard wearing material that is used throughout TfL for seating fabric on buses and trains.
This moquette design was produced for post-war RT-type buses and was developed from a similar pattern which had been designed for the first batch of RTs delivered between 1939 and 1942. The colours are probably derived from the shades found in the functional interior décor of the RT-type, which has evolved from other bus types such as the ST and STL-types as finished in the late 1930s.
