Simple bags

May 14, 2010

The Sevedge magazine features makers in every issue of the magazine. They choose artists that fulfil their criteria of well-fashioned design, beautiful raw materials and integrity in the process of making. They have also gathered a select group of items that we can buy direct from Selvedge web page.

I choose some bags, because I adore the simplicity of beauty that they represent. I think also I choose those bags because now I am in the moment of searching the right pattern of bag I want to sew for myself. Maybe you’ll find the righ for you … :-)
