Custom Works: the Aporta Tote

October 24, 2013

Oh yes, another custom piece in beautiful black. This time for my dear friend Noelle of APORTA. Noelle is a skilled knitter and weaver in search of a black tote focused on clean lines and ongoing depth to house her necessities for being such a lovely artist and entrepreneur. 

While the outside of the bag seams (see what I did there? ;-) like never-ending lines of black, I embroidered a monochromatic triangle, to bring your eyes front and center to the subtle but strong logo for APORTA. 

Even more custom, the inside of The Aporta Tote is fully lined with an oversized signature inside flap pocket, tagged with my CHC logo. It's rare that I fully line a bag because I love to celebrate all angles of cowhide but in order to be of best use for Noelle, a lining will add her own character to the bag as well as protect her yarns from common dustings from the raw side of cowhide.

The Aporta Tote stands at:

16"W x 18"L x 2"D

28" double shoulder straps with a 24" drop

fully lined with black and white stripe cotton

oversized inside flap pocket

In doing so, she created three distinct abstract designs and then worked them within three distinct accessories; hanging wall art, a tote and a clutch.
