shell work bag.

lately i’ve been thinking about shapes and structure in my work and how to manipulate materials to achieve a unique bag form. with my daughter’s recent return from walking the camino de santiago, the shell has been on my mind. the scallop shell is a significant symbol along the ancient route and is used as a guide for pilgrims walking the path. through piecing leathers, i found that the outcome reminded me of the beautiful ridges we find on all sorts of shells.

so, here you have it: the shell work bag. it is just that: a shell to hold your possessions. the perfect size for what you need, without being too overwhelming, the shell work bag is fully lined with 2 large interior slip pockets for stashing your smaller essentials (keys, phone, sunglasses…) and features a long, removable shoulder strap. the crowning glory of the bag is the multitude of intricate stitching details incorporated into every portion. plenty of time and attention to detail has been spent on the final outcome and you can be assured that the shell work bag is built to last.

each leather used in the creation of this bag was sustainably sourced from cococo furniture located in north carolina. this handmade furniture company is mindful in finding ways to utilize their waste and i am proud to be partnering with them in an effort to mutually decrease our environmental footprints on this majestic planet.

the highest quality leathers are used in this bag. i use top and full grain leathers and like the fact that each hide we use shows its own natural markings and grain characteristics. each hide shows small scars, marks and color variations and i think this adds to the character of each finished piece. every part of your bag is meticulously hand cut and each ending row of stitches has been hand knotted several times to ensure a strong seam.

i want you to carry your bag with confidence and ease. scratches and creases are to be expected with time. your bag will develop a beautiful natural patina that is 100% unique to you.

made with pride and an armful of love in south carolina, usa.
