Anna Atkins Keeper Pouch: Fucus vesiculosus
This pouch features one of Anna Atkins’ seaweed cyanotypes engraved on a vegetable-tanned leather brand.
Anna Atkins was the first person to use photography to illustrate a book. Note – NOT the first woman, but the first human! She was an incredible illustrator and had illustrated some books for her father, but the discovery of Cyanotypes sent her into a new obsession. She began making photographic images of her extensive seaweed collection in 1843. She created thousands of cyanotype prints and sent them to libraries and other institutions in the mid-1800s for their collections – many of which remain today, including, of course, the collection at the New York Public Library!
Our Keeper Pouch is a wonderfully versatile zipper pouch that can fit a variety of necessities. Use as a clutch or toss in your bag for a little more organization!
Constructed waxed canvas originated in the sailing industry in Scotland in the 1920s and became widely used in sportswear and apparel because of its waterproofing abilities and superb durability.
