A fun tote bag is this brown ikat number with goatskin leather handles. We'd like to think of it as sculptural, at the same time a functional object. If you're looking for an original bag, then you've found it!

This bag was inspired by a brown Ikea paper bag - all crumpled but proud in its functionality - glimpsed through the rear window of a car passing us by on the road to Montpellier, near where we live in the south of France. We made the bag in our workshop, which is a caravan stranded in a field where ducks and flamingos are occasional visitors.

Fitting that we make our products in a studio with wheels, for we do think of ourselves as part-gypsy. We like to travel, experience the world...

We found the fabric we use for this bag in southern Philippines. The fabric is called T'nalak, made from abaca filaments harvested, hand-dyed, and then hand-woven on their looms by members of the T'boli tribe. It is meticulous work. A piece 20-feet long can take as much as two months to create. As a finishing touch, the fabric is polished to a sheen with a piece of shell rubbed by hand all over the length of it.

Height: 8.3 inches or 21cm
Length: 6 inches or 15cm
Width: 4 to 6 inches or 10cm to 15cm

It is lightweight, and very durable. The fabric has been hardened. Wipe with a soft cloth to clean.

Other colors are available (please see last photo).
