Our Design Process

Collections explore the uniqueness created by crafting each handbag individually and combining hand-stitching and machine sewing to further enhance this quality.

 

Knitting & Crocheting the Panels

Each handbag is individually knitted and crocheted prior to felting, creating a seamless body.

 

Felting
