fennica is a shop that focuses on bridging the gap between design and craft with their product selection and original items. Their latest release is the Lag Handle Tote bag which is produced in conjunction with PORTER and Bå° YOSHIDA which are known for their craftsmanship in bag manufacturing.
To stay with the fennica theme, they have chosen to use plain canvas material on the outside with accents on the handle reinforcement section. The colorful fabrics used on the handle is of a deadstock printed fabrics from Finland and each bag has its own personality with non being the exact same. Bringing out an antique feel is the additional stone bio wash treatment to the outer canvas that looks used and full of character. However on the inside is the mechanics of the tote bag with ample useful compartments that might be hard to believe from its basic exterior.
