In collaboration with Facing West we made a limited serie of 3 bags with handstitched Sashiko stitchings. Sashiko comes from Japan and the word literally means “Little stabs”. It is a form of decorative reinforcement stitching traditionally used by farmers and fishermen to reinforce points of wear, or to repair worn places or tears with patches. Nowadays this running stitch technique is often used for purely decorative purposes in quilting and embroidery. The Sashiko stitchings are very time consuming and it took Facing West about 9 hours per bag.
All Atelier de l’Armée bags are one of a kind, individually numbered and constructed from carefully selected materials. The distinct look of our materials can only be achieved by years of usage, therefore our bags may have stains, small repairs, erros, stamps or other natural wear. This is all part of our philosophy, it is what makes them special. Our bags are made by hand with great care for detail in our small workshop in Amsterdam. They are build to last and strong enough to hold all your belongings

This is so beautiful it almost made me cry. Lots of stimuli for Alien Botany development, too.

Corals and sponges are very mobile creatures, but their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen. These animals build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives. More here.
