Nesting Bag

No where to hide
Where nothing could be hidden as everything is revealed. A transparent luxury handbag where every stitch had to be right as everything is exposed. Allowing every stage to take its time to evolve. Boldly fusing a delicate Hardanger embroidery, a tread counting technique often found on Norwegian folk costumes, together with Hight-tech knitted steel and leather using traditional saddlery technique. Bringing everything together with colours. The transparency is revealing the embroidered pocket. It enables the viewer to see the work of quality as well as the carriers possession.
