An attractive and seductive but ultimately dangerous woman.
Origin: literally “deadly woman”
A femme fatale is a mysterious and seductive woman whose charms ensnare her lovers in bonds of irresistible desire, often leading them into compromising, dangerous, and deadly situations. She is an archetype of literature and art. Her ability to entrance and hypnotize her victim with a spell was in the earliest stories seen as being literally supernatural; hence, the femme fatale today is still often described as having a power akin to an enchantress, seductress, vampire, witch, or demon, having some power over men. The phrase is French for "fatal woman". A femme fatale tries to achieve her hidden purpose by using feminine wiles such as beauty, charm, and sexual allure. In some situations, she uses lying or coercion rather than charm. She may also make use of some subduing weapon such as sleeping gas, a modern analog of magical powers in older tales. She may also be a victim, caught in a situation from which she cannot escape; The Lady from Shanghai is one such example. A younger version of a femme fatale may be called a fille fatale, or "fatal girl." Although typically villainous, if not morally ambiguous, and always associated with a sense of mystification and unease, femmes fatales have also appeared as anti-heroines in some stories, and some even repent and become true heroines by the end of the tale. Some stories even feature benevolent and heroic femmes fatales who use their wiles to snare the villain for the greater good
I use this tote all the time to pack up groceries, WINE, books...and I give them as gifts too! This tote is one of my favs because I like the durability and the long handles, as I prefer slinging it over my shoulder versus holding it in my hand.
All of our items are printed to have a bit of a vintage feel- so if some ink is spotty, missing, etc. it is purposefully done to give an aged look.
The ink used on this item is hand mixed by me so sometimes it can turn out lighter or darker depending- the image shown gives a basic idea of what the color will look like, but since everyone's computer is different- it may be a tad off in color upon receipt of garment.
Hand screened by us! (no factories, no machines). Machine washable, but we do recommend washing it inside out, on COLD so the image will last through many, many washes. We only use ECO FRIENDLY WATER BASED INKS --- ink will fade slightly and become softer after first wash- this is natural and chosen to give that Vintage look!
These are computer generated images-Since each product is hand printed, placement and sizing (due to the shape) may vary slightly, but overall is still what you see in the pics :)
