The bags from the Samir1809 collection come from cross between craftsmanship and recycling, based on the idea of giving an object like a bag essence and personality. Entirely handmade in recycled materials, each Samir1809 bag is a unique numbered and dated object. Large military bags are garment-dyed with a fatigued effect and enhanced with details made from rubber braiding. Waste material like jute from coffee sacks and bicycle wheel tubes is processed and adapted to the bag exterior, and combined with re-used, “flawed” or waste leather. All stitching is carried out by hand using thread made from bicycle tubes.
