The Taylor Bag is inspired by a conversation Adan Ballou had with a friend Lennard Taylor. A designer himself, they where talking about a bag his grandmother used that he now had on display in his workshop. While discussing different design features it occurred to them that this bag carried many memories, both hers & his. The travels the bag had seen where apparent in the many scratches & stains the leather's deep rich patina wore with a sort of grace. It was this ability to carry memories that inspired the Taylor Bag design.
The design & construction of this bag ensure it will not ‘wear out’ but rather ‘wear in’ like the working leathers that inspired it. Years from now, your Taylor bag will tell the stories you’ve collected together through the scars and wrinkles that only a quality leather product can display with pride and grace.
This luxury tote bag features:
"There is a particular glow that some things have. You can see it most in things that are made by hand, like old buildings or home made meals. When something is made with great feeling it carries over. It can't be faked, its authenticity can be seen like a smile. This bag represents my efforts to manifest this effect, what I think is a new kind of luxury, one that shines differently than gold" - Adan Ballou
