Four Tone Sand Bag

or make 4 interest-free payments of $72.50 AUD fortnightly with Afterpay More info

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.

 

The handheld bag dimensions are | 29cm Wide, 51cm High 

All elements are hand made including a dust bag and screen printed swing tag 

No two bags are the same
