My first man's tote - made for me!

I've started going out and about visiting stores and generally looking at who's out there selling and promoting "slow fashion." There's so many cool and creative people who handcraft beautifully made products from the best quality materials. I used to have a Crumpler bag (such a great Melbourne design success story) and loved it. But hey, I've been so busy getting this site up and running that I forgot about myself. I make bags, so I thought now's the time to make myself one - that I actually get to call my own! I went the whole way - customised it with Royal Blue thread after finding a cool pair of blue laces from the guys at Mavericks Laces ( another great idea to come out of Melbourne) and embossed it with my initials M.W. Here are a few pictures taken during the hand making process........
