Along with a small story, each label carries information of fabric and production. Detailing how each bag has been produced, care instructions, ways to wear and the material content - from fibre and fabric to fastenings and packaging.
By telling the story of each design, providing transparent information on materials, production and care instructions, can we add value to the object and potentially encourage emotional durability?
