GEORGE

Four Tone Orange Bag

$290.00

GEORGE  was conceived by Australian designer and weaver Georgina Whigham. A floating plastic bag was the catalyst for this series of handwoven bags, designed to emulate the characteristics of the object, but seeking to counteract its throwaway mass-produced connotations. The series intends to change perceptions around an object, its value, and its craftsmanship.


Each GEORGE  bag is handwoven on a 4-shaft floor loom, using cotton yarn sourced from a family-run mill in Canada. Taking around 8 hours to weave and construct, the bag is woven in one continuous piece. Dropping the weft where textile is not required to reduce material waste. The woven fabric is folded much like origami, into its final form before being sewn.

 

 

Each bag is unique

Dimensions | 52cm high, 30cm wide, 8cm depth

Includes handmade dust bag and screen-printed swing tag 

 

 

100% Cotton 

Handmade in Australia

Gentle warm machine wash, warm iron
