Shopping with leather

baggu-leather-bag

Minimalism with a hint of humor has found it´s way to accessory design. These fabulous bags from Anve look like common paper lunch bags but are in fact made of very soft leather with a snap closure and are very pleasant to touch. They are handmade with love – either crafted by small Portuguese manufacturers or created in their own studio in Lisbon and only available in small editions. The Baggu leather shopper is also something that is easy to DIY from leather.

To make one yourself, you´ll need:
real paper bag / plastic bag as model
soft leather (skirt, pants, jacket)
ruler
pen
hammer
scissors
leather / textile glue


1. Measure and cut the piece from leather.
2. Mark folding lines.
3. Fold leather using a ruler and softly hammer the folds down.
4. Glue bottom and top fold.

  3. Ooh nuo Anven laukut vois olla hienoja myös huovasta ja vaikka kahvipaketista (yksivärinen puoli ulospäin ja vuorilla varustettuna)! Tai hopeanvärisestä sadetakkikankaasta!
