This Duffle Bag is ready to ship!

This uniquely crafted repurposed blanket & leather duffle bag will certainly add to the experience of your next road trip... it's ready & waiting to join you on your adventure.⁠

The main feature of this bag is the vegetable tanned kangaroo leather from a tannery that specialises in kangaroo, combined with salvaged woollen blanket.

All blankets are washed thoroughly, hung out in the sun for several days for natural steralising and airing. The bag is then lined in 100% premium quality linen with two linen lined side pockets and a small internal zipered pocket.

Hand saddlery stitched feature handles and detachable leather shoulder strap. This is truly a unique duffle bag, made with attention to detail.

Handcrafted  in store at Creators Nest, Yass.

THE INSPIRATION:

Seeing many beautiful old blankets in op shops time and time again, some with holes or burn marks but still with loads of character... I decided these beautiful old blankets needed to be given a new purpose, transformed into statement pieces. That is what inspired this repurposed blanket collection. They're eye catching and great conversation starters! This is the feedback I receive regularly from purchasers of my range. Add to that the kangaroo leather and you have even more to talk about, it's a light weight leather which softens beautifully with use.

The blankets take people down memory lane, back to a time when they once had a blanket just like it on their bed, while kangaroo leather connects them to nature. It's one of the most wild & free of animals in our environment, roaming these lands at will. With increased numbers meaning over grazed farmland, causing starvation for the kangaroos and livestock, culling practices have been put into place to keep numbers at bay. I chose to work with this uniquely Australian material.

I've given these blankets a new sense of purpose, brought their character out in the open for all to enjoy once again while bringing awareness to how beautiful and useful kangaroo leather is!
