AIRTH was our first bag design, and a bit of a labour of love. But we couldn't be happier with the outcome.
To make this piece, we embarked on a journey of deconstruction, using silk velvet dresses from the 1930s and cotton velvet curtains from the 1940s. Through this process, we crafted our own fabric, featuring rich stripes that evoke the nostalgia of old, plush velvet sofas.
The result is a cool and distinctive bag that reflects our love for craftsmanship and attention to detail.
The straps can be worn over the shoulder or across the arm.
REUSE & RECREATE: The textiles we use in our collections come from a range of sources which aim to reduce our environmental impact. We primarily use vintage and antique textiles. We also utilise salvaged and remnant fabrics from the fashion and interiors industry. As well as deadstock fabrics for lining.
As such, there may be small imperfections or blemishes in the fabric. We believe this is part of the appeal of buying a unique, handcrafted product, and we celebrate the idiosyncrasies. Any significant issues will be noted on the product listing.
CARE DETAILS: We recommend dry cleaning on all of our products. Velvet doesn't love the rain, so please take care in wet weather and make sure to keep the bag covered.
Avoid Overloading: Do not fill your bags beyond their capacity. This can strain the seams and straps. Our velvet totes are great for clothing and smaller everyday essentials.
