Our artisan bags are individually hand crafted in our Fitzroy studio. These one of a kind statement bags were featured in our A/W 20 Runway event to complement our latest collection. Utilising a thoughtfully pieced collage of Japanese raw denim and fine Italian wool, each bag is created as a unique work of art which cannot be repeated.
The Artist’s Giant Denim Tote elevates the bohemian traveller’s carry all to a level of handcrafted luxury, with hand painted detailing to echo the mark of the artist. A romantic image of the artist comes to mind, carrying large folios of work, with pockets and compartment for tools and supplies.
The flat, large scale size of this tote bag is enhanced by a single piece of wool which has been meticulously moulded and stitched into a multi pocket panel, creating a sculptural collage which is also greatly practical. The tote featured a fold-over top which showcases the raw selvedge of the fabric, while the sides of the bag are capped with moulded leather corners for a high-quality finish. The tote closes with two simple magnetic snaps and the bags inner holds a large zip pocket in heavy cotton denim twill. Robust genuine leather forms the straps of this bag, topstitched with heavy thread for added durability. Everyday practicality meets wearable art in this unique piece which is to be worn and treasured for years to come.
