About Us

ABOUT US

Our story began in 2016 out of love for simple, handcrafted things.  The creative spirit behind the brand was simple, fresh design with delightful surprises. Our design seeks to find a balance in everyday living. 

The balance between new technology and history.  

The balance between machining and handcrafting.  

The balance between too much and too little.  

The balance between functional and free spirit.

The balance between complex and simple.

The balance between bore and delightful surprise.

The balance between stale and fresh.

 

OUR TECHNIQUES

We seek to find a balance between new technology and handcrafting.

80% of our prodcts are handcrafted.  By handcraft, what we mean is that the product is entirely made by hand, using only traditional tools and techniques.

For example, in handcrafting a leather bag, the entire process uses hand, including stitching, which is done by traditional saddle stitching using two needles. This entire process contributes almost zero carbon footprint. If a leather bag is assembled together using sewing machine, we do not consider this as 100% handcrafted. ​

For straw bags, the entire process is made by hand using crotchet technique or weaving technique.

For bead bags, the entire process is made by stringing the beads together, bead by bead.
