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

For the sake of rest, travel and learning, I've decided to hit pause and close shop from September through December.

This summer marked the send off of my apprentice of 3 years, Lucy. What a pleasure it's been to have worked alongside her; learning as much as teaching.
My time with her has taught me a new appreciation for even the tiniest of details, that the right question can open up new realms in creating and to not be limited by others perception of you, age or otherwise.
