ONE PINCH BUCKET BAG - by the French designer INES BRESSAND, finalist of the International Fashion, Photography and Fashion Accessories Festival of Hyères 2018.
AKAMAE collection is a series of baskets woven in Ghana. The craftsmen makes simple shapes, then the designer re-shapes them with a technique inspired by the hat-making process. Once back to France, she adds the vegetable tanned leather handles.
The straw used for this collection is called elephant grass or Pennisetum Purpureum. It’s a tall wild grass growing in the savanah which becomes naturally golden once dry. It’s simply rolled by hand by the craftsmen, who can weave it once dipped in water. The simplicity of the material is magnified by the craftsmen skills, weaving at home or together under the shade of trees. Baskets being collected directly at each craftsmen houses’s ensure they can organise themselves and be independent. The price of the basket is also fare, as it is fixed together.
Both a fashion accessory and a decorative objects, this basket will never be put aside. A most elegant bag with its black leather handle, a nice volume in a simple shape to hold all you need. Magnetic closure.
