Slowness / purse


Slowness is a purse design which is combination of traditional craft and fashion. In Chinese, “bag” to the meaning of the word is to bred and protect, and therefore the concept of shape is based on circle to display the image of embryo. In the visual, the grain of a piece of wood can be seen as a flowing line, winding like a stream of water. The image of a goldfish, swimming free and quick. This is a bag of beauty, but also of great utility. Using a mix of veneers instead of wood for the body of the bag makes it lighter, and the lacquer makes it solid and durable.
