It’s All About The Bag – Georgia On My Mind

November 22nd, 2011

It’s all about the bag. The man bag that is.

For me, the shoes are the window to the soul. If you have bad shoes, it tells me a lot about you. Same goes for the bag.

If it’s a work bag, overnight bag or just a day bag to carry your man bits and pieces, this Georgia On My Mind bag is really doing it for me.

Hand made in Greece from vegetable tanned leather, this gorgeously contemporary yet classic bag has 2 short handles with 2 small side & 1 large front outer pocket. It’s got brass buckles, metal feet on the base and a detachable adjustable shoulder strap with a maximum length of 130cm.

A little about Georgia On My Mind: They make a range of handmade sandals, travel bags, natural cotton wear and accessories. Designed in Melbourne, their products are hand crafted in Europe by some of the finest artisans using traditional methods passed down from generation to generation. Made from genuine hand dyed vegetable tanned leather using 100% environmentally friendly techniques utilising raw natural untreated leathers that become softer and darker with age.

How can you go past this brand?

The bag is priced at $599.

FSP Collections Springbok Cushions – The Wild Addition To Your Home

May 20th, 2010

Earlier this week I wrote about FSP Collection bags for men and women (click HERE to see), made of beautiful and luxurious Springbok from South Africa. But FSP Collection have also got cushions made of the divine Springbok hide, distributed by Djaafar.

The leather used to manufacture this Collection is environmentally friendly. All hides are obtained through South African Government approved animal herd reduction programs.

The springbok skin cushions are a distinctive accessory for the home – exquisitely tactile, resilient and  unique. They would suit most styles of décor – eclectic, modern, African, Tribal, Asian inspired. It could even be stretched out to being a real point of difference in a federation or Rococo style (which a black one would look great in my place!). It’s suitability is quite limitless.

Amazing Leather Women’s & Unisex Bags By FSP Collection

May 19th, 2010

For those who believe life should be stylish and unique, I’ve found a range of women’s and unisex leather (Springbok) bags, which will set you apart from anyone else.

Originating from South Africa, the FSP Collection expresses both the vibrant colors inherent to African culture and the appreciation of natural environments.

I got an up-close and personal viewing of the collection, which showcases a variety of hides, used to create these stunning bags. FSP use hair-on hides, which retain a natural look of the skin. Springbok bags, also from FSP are made to be durable, but they are also one-of-a-kind. For those of you that don’t know what a Springbok is, it’s an Antelope.

In either the women’s handbag or the unisex satchel, there is a style or colour to suit you and your lifestyle. For me, it’s the tan and white hide bag. Natural, but absolutely striking!

I asked exclusive distributor Djaafar what the inspiration behind the FSP Collection was, “Inspired by the need to create striking yet functional handbags, the leather used to manufacture this Collection is not only environmentally friendly but ages beautifully with wear. The leather is tanned with the natural extracts from the bark of Wattle and Mimosa trees, using 100% natural translucent dyes to achieve its unique finish. The result is cheerful, lively colors with fruit as a central theme.”

All of the bags are available in a range of stunning colours. I urge you to consider one of these bags, you will have people stopping you in the street!

Immerse yourself in the pride and beauty of Africa.
