Pakistan & Canada, Handwork Studio, Folded Tote Bag Multi Stripes + Circles
Folded Tote Bag – Multi Stripes + Circles
Textiles used in our home and accessories collections are made in collaboration with artisans working in Ajrak dyeing in Sindh, Pakistan. In this complex and ancient process, artisans work in complete harmony with their environment: the sun, river, animals, plant dyes, trees and mud are all part of the art of making Ajrak. Dyeing slowly with numerous layers creates fabrics that are rich and nuanced in surface and colour. All of our textiles are made to last and to be a personal pleasure and humble luxury – they are respectful of both consumers and makers.
Inspired by traditional Japanese bags, this tote is constructed by folding the fabric in ingenious ways to prevent any cutting waste. The clean silhouette ows elegantly with you on the subway ride to work or a day trip to the beach. Hand crafted by our skilled artisan partners in Pakistan.
