Legacy Malini Egg Bag by Fabric Manipulation(c. 2002) (Submit Review) (Submit Update)
I have not performed the Egg Bag for over twenty years. However, recently I was reminded of all my earlier performances by reading the absolutely amazing Classic Secrets of Magic by Bruce Elliot. Once reminded I then read about the work of Lynetta Welch at Fabric Manipulation so decided to order the Silk Legacy Egg Bag.
And what a beauty it is – very small, very supple, and perfect for all the standard Egg Bag moves and more. I am very excited about getting this true classic back into my act. Thanks Lynetta for doing such a nice job and suggesting the Silk version – it truly is beautiful.
Apart from the quality of seams, material and manufacture there were three other things that caught my eye with this bag:
- It has a double edge of sewing on the gimmick side,
- The silk material makes it very easy to turn it inside out,
- The sheen and lightness of the sheen tend to make it fold in a natural way thereby further adding to the illusion that the bag is empty.
The silk of course is not like silk handkerchiefs, a much stronger and thicker quality is used so this will last a long time. Finally, this bag is small but that is how an Egg Bag should be. I have seen some huge bags that could hide a dozen eggs … hardly amazing to loose one little egg.
Effect: The Malini Egg Bag is the creation of none other than Max Malini. Charlie Miller made improvements to the Legacy Malini egg bag and Johnny Thompson perfected it. Fabric Manipulation is honored to have been chosen by Johnny Thompson to exclusively manufacture this legendary piece of magic.
Our Legacy Malini egg bags are made of what we feel is the perfect silk fabric; it is the ideal weight and thickness, enabling the egg to slide easily, yet allowing for minimal “bulge”. The silk fabric drapes over your hand, adding to the illusion that the bag is definitely empty. Other bags on the market are made of stiffer fabrics, which we feel takes away from the overall illusion.
Silk Legacy Malini Egg Bags measure 7″ wide x 8″ long and include our signature rounded corners and large rounded pocket. The design and construction of these egg bags are according to Johnny Thompson’s exact design specifications.
Custom sized bags are available. Contact us for ordering and information.
Available in black, cobalt blue, and red.
