Craft

‘Hand-made’ ...

What’s in a bag? endless possibilities; a format for formulating; an equation; a score to plot the choreography of pieces of cotton canvas, and linen, and leather that dance together to enclose a space.

The patterns for each of the models we make are cardboard battlefields, patched with strips adding millimetres to pockets, to gussets and dividers… Masking tape hides construction points that have been shifted back and forth... and we leave scribbled notes each time we discover a new technique ...

Everything changes, ricochets, suggests something else.

Our work is in orchestrating pieces that play to all our senses… Towards the bag as a mobile concert...
