Small Batch of New Autumn Colours (2022)
We settle into the old mill as if it were home. Søren rests against what is left of a wall and opens his sketchbook to map out a world of his own invention. Silas walks back and forth on the high edge of the wall where once was a roof, headphones on, music playing. Walter and I unpack weekenders filled with clothes, masks, and our new autumn-coloured bags. Despite the calm, we are working under the Autumn sun and have little time. Pearl stuffs her wet and twitching nose into leaf piles, exploring worlds unknown to us.
Trees drop their leaves into and around what is left of the old Mill where women once gathered and chattered whilst waiting for warm bread. Our senses are ignited out here in this sentient place – amongst beings seen and unseen. There is an abundance of things to be grateful for, our lists are never long enough.
Inspired by Autumn, we’ve put together a small batch of some of our favourite bags in four new colours: Elderberry, Red Maple, Birch, and Fog. We’ve also chosen Red Maple for our Sendaks! These bags are constructed with the same durable waxed canvas we love, hand-dyed with special colours, and finished with our brown or black vegetable-tanned leather! As with all of our bags, these can be personalized.
If you’ve been following along with us for a while, you may have noticed that not all launches are the same – some products stay for years, some fly off the shelves, and others fall somewhere in between. Here are some explanations to distinguish between our various collection types.
Standard Collections: Everything in our standard collections will be ongoing until we decide to stop making them! They may include some vintage or antique materials, (ex. journal fabric lining) but these details will vary subtly to ensure their ongoingness.
Small Batch Collections: Limited batches incorporating specialty or vintage materials where larger batches can be made, but are not infinite! The quantity ranges, but we aim for minimum of 100 in these collections.
Of a Kind Collections: Limited batches incorporating vintage or antique materials. Each object will be limited from 1–20 items depending upon our findings.
