HISTORY OF THE BAG
A bag carries expression, personality and standing, it is quietly confident, a luxury or a statement. Designed to contain and carry our 'necessities' the bag is more than a simple container. Throughout history, the container has been concealed or revealed and elevated. The rituals of a bag are many; there is comfort in holding it, a pause in opening it, a concealment of the contents...within a bag we reveal ourselves.
