The Way We Were
Taking inspiration from the shapes and textures of nature, our 2010 collection, 'The Way We Were', features natural fibres such as organic cotton, hemp and yak’s wool, soft leather trim, Australian hard woods and smooth hand-cast resin stones.
The collection is available in two colourways. “Drift” brings together warm beige and coffee tones offset by richly stained Tasmanian Oak which has been inlaid with chocolate and ivory marbled resin stones. The “Shell” colourway reduces colour to a minimum in a simple palette of arctic white and creamy vanilla. Featuring super high-gloss Silky Oak panels inlaid with ivory and clear resin stones.
The inherent uniqueness of each of the materials used results in each piece in the range being like none other. The natural slubs and weave of the fabric, the grain of the timber and the pouring of the resin stones each contribute to a truly original and unique accessory. In fact, over time even the hue of the timber will change with age, for example, silky oak takes on a golden honey glow.
All of our accessories are proudly designed and made in Australia. While the fabrics used in this collection were not able to be sourced locally, our timber panels and resin stones are made in Queensland by a skilled artisan, just for us. Each bag is individually made by hand in our Brisbane studio.
