For this piece I'm using a German feedsack three times my age (around 150 years old), strong, soft, billowy, voluptuous. I had to practice restrain because I wanted the nature of the material to dominate.

The feedsack is a lovely oatmeal color with indigo stripes running through it.

The lining is a vintage silk in vanilla bean, such a pleasure to touch, and extremely strong like the feedsack.

The strap is vintage indigo Bedouin hand embroidery from the Levantine, lined in new hand-dyed turquoise linen.

It's a medium-sized messenger with a slip pocket and a caribiner on a chord.

Nostalgia closes with an antiqued bronze magnetic snap.

Motivated by love of endurance, of earth, simplicity, and beauty, I made this bag for the woman who attatches importance to those things.
