I recently learnt that our oceans generate half the oxygen we breath, I knew they were precious but had no idea how much they impact each and every one of us, even if you don’t live anywhere near an ocean. At the same time I had been creating and imagining how this design would be interpreted. I had my camera in an underwater housing and was playing around having some fun swimming and breathing out underwater to capture my breath visually. I’d been working on developing it and had been adding elements and hand painted shapes, but they had never seemed to add enough or the right feel to it…in the end it was meant to be left as it was, naturally it had to be called Breath!
Digitally printed on organic cotton canvas which is so super soft but strong enough to carry EVERYTHING! The printing inks are water based and only exactly what is needed for this bag is printed on the organic cotton canvas so no left over waste; which keeps our earth (and me!) happy.
The back of the bag is a raw linen (which means it's not over processed and bleached) in a natural driftwood colour, the handles are made from marine grade cotton rope (super strong and durable) and fringed into thick soft tassels, an industrial metal eyelet is used to ensure strength.
