Axel Mano Stripe Bag Brown
A chic new design from the lovely people at Axel Mano of Sydney.
Designed to be worn across the body, long on one shoulder, or double up the strap and wear it on one side. Roomy enough for papers, but sleek and not at all bulky. The main compartment closes with a zip, and inside there is a big mesh pocket on one side, and a quick access phone pocket on the other, plus a key fisher.
This piece includes:
- Zip closure
- Long shoulder strap, which can be doubled up for a different look
- Plenty of interior pockets
- Light-coloured lining so the contents are easily visible
Handmade in Sydney by Axel Mano, using supple webbing, with the strength of seat belts but a very soft touch.
'Axel Mano' is the design partnership of Susie Meekin & Graham Clarke who apply the same philosophy when designing bags as they do hats, using simple materials in an inventive yet practical way, whilst at the same time reflecting the mood of the season. Susie comes from a design background and studied millinery in London before returning to Australia to open the 'Axel Mano' store in Woollahra, Sydney, with Graham, an artist and designer, in 1999. All the current bags in the range are made of industrial re-recyclable webbing, which is very hard-wearing and is used for seatbelts and other heavy weight-bearing uses, yet is soft to the touch and lightweight. The bag fittings are sourced in Italy, and every model has pockets for mobile phones and other essentials, with gorgeous linings of brightly coloured silks and cottons.
Every piece is handmade in Australia.
