Origin Sling | Indigo Sea

Origin Sling | Indigo Sea


This one of a kind Origin Sling is my pride and joy of this latest collection. I created it from a soft and lighter weight vegetable-tanned cowhide, which I dyed in my studio using indigo and henna. I was able to achieve these two beautiful colors -- a soft sea green and stone blue -- through a new indigo recipe. For the trim (which makes this design indestructible) I complimented my nature-derived color palette with a dark coffee brown American buffalo hide.


Lately, I've been trying to find more of a flowy nature in my stitching. As a surfer, I often start my day by getting tumbled in the Ocean, and I think those experiences make their way into what I create later in my studio. I've found that inside, we may have our sharp angles, we may feel like a tightly wound coil, but the movement of the Ocean is an unraveling force, pulling us into her flow. The stitching meditation on this piece is an expression of that. 


For this collection, I wanted to experiment with a different strap length for the Origin Sling, as it completley changes the siloughette of the design. The wide strap hangs comfortably from your shoulder, creating a beautiful drapey, drippy shape with just as much holding capacity as before.

The Origin Sling is a big bag that is built to be used. There is a lot of usable space in this design with its rectangular bottom. I often take mine to the beach or park, packed with a light towel, journal and water bottle. Also, if you're carrying just a ligher load (wallet and the daily essentials) the Origin Sling drapes in on itself, creating a beautiful slouch silhouette.
