This is a one of a kind hand-painted and handmade Wallet,

that once belonged to a big beautiful original canvas artwork by Kim Miatke.

Now the joy is spread across a small number of unique tote bags, clutches, wallets & cardholders..

No two are the same. They share the same name but all look

a bit different and have their own number.


Tote Bag approximate measurements:

Height: ~11cm

Width: ~21cm

This Wallet is lined in teal cotton fabric with a Gingham pockets inside. It closes with a silver magnetic clasp.


Here is the story of this artwork. Our hope is that it will speak to your heart as much as the art delights your eyes.



⁠In this weird, crazy COVID season ⁠

there are most definitely challenges.⁠

There are new things to navigate and ⁠

there are old issues once again visiting our lives.  ⁠

The hills and different shapes in this artwork represent ⁠

the mountains we are climbing at the moment.  ⁠

It is not just about or for Melbourne, but it is for our whole world.  ⁠

It is a reminder to you and I personally, to this city of Melbourne⁠

we live in and also for human kind, ⁠

that we are stronger than we think we are.⁠

We can go further than we thought possible.  ⁠

We can keep moving forward even when it feels like we can’t.  ⁠

How do we do this?  How do we get up and do it again and again and again?⁠

How do we put one foot in front of the other ⁠

when it feels like they are being dragged through mud?⁠

Hope.  Hope as certain as we know that spring will come again.  ⁠

Hope that things will change.⁠

Hope that life will look different.  Hope that great things will be learnt. ⁠

Hope that we will change for the better.  Hope that life will bloom again.⁠

Hope is the flowers painted over the top of the hills and shapes ⁠

that represent different parts of our world.  ⁠

Spring is the season of hope.  Knowing spring will come gives hope.⁠

Hope is where strength comes from.⁠

Hold onto to that hope my sweet friends.⁠

Sending you strength & hope with my whole heart,⁠

Here's some tips on how to love me well:

(ie. care instructions)



- take me out to dinner

- take me shopping

- gently wipe me with a damp cloth if I get a bit dirty

- take me to the movies

- take me on a date

- take me swimming, I won’t survive underwater

eg. washing machines and I aren’t friends

- leave me at the shops, someone might take me home

- pop me in the fire or any other high heat environment

eg. a hot car, next to or on a heater - I will melt

WALLET - Spring Will Come #01

  • Wallets are made from original canvas artwork, protected by a plastic outer coating and lined with 100% cotton fabric. 

    Each Wallet is hand made and will have minor variations.

    Outer plastic will scratch over time with use.  It is not scratch resistant.

    Wallet approximate measurements:

    Height: ~11cm

    Width: ~21cm



    Do not expose to high temperatures, leave in a car or in full sun.

    Do not immerse in water. Spot clean only with a damp cloth.


    Colour may vary slightly from monitor to monitor, screen to screen, and there may be minor differences in colour between on-screen images and actual product.  Often times, the product will  appear richer in real life.
