Our oversize bag is meticously hand-embroidered with kantha stitch, which recalls the structures of the Italian Rational Architecture or Architettura Razionalista’s buildings. The bag comes with leather handles and two inside pockets.

Kantha is a running stitch embroidery tradition from West Bengal, India and Bangladesh. The technique is also very similar to sashiko stitching from Japan, whose garment cuts’ tradition also inspired the collection’s silhouettes.

Made of 100% hemp, the bag is hand-dyed and hand-embroidered at Afterlife Projects, a Kolkata-based design studio with whom we partnered for the collection’s craft pieces. The textile’s irregularities reflect the handmade nature of the entire process and are part of the bag’s beauty.

Bag’s dimensions:

  • Width (bottom): 57 cm

  • Width (opening): 40 cm

  • Length: 44 cm
