So how do we make them? This market bag is made using reclaimed cement paper, to start. The paper is fused to fabric to make it strong. This means we can stitch it and the durability is not compromised. Once made up, we spray it with Nano Liquid Glass which is environmentally friendly. This coating makes the bag water resistant because it doesn’t make sense if you cannot use it outside!
Features of the Messenger Bag:
- Screen-printed cement paper fused to fabric
- 100% cotton webbing straps reinforced with metal rivets
- Lined with hemp fabric
- Coated with Nano liquid glass
- Wide opening for easy packing
More about this range:
The Promenade in Sea Point is one of designer Heather Moore’s a favourite places in Cape Town, because there is just so much to see. Waves & surfers, paragliders & windblown trees, pram pushers & wheelchairs, dogs & joggers all make up a passing parade that’s one of the enduring pleasures of Cape Town life, & one that’s free for all to enjoy.
Alongside the passing parade, the Promenade has a wealth of midcentury architecture, which adds a particular charm to the stretch of Beach Road from Mouille Point to Three Anchor Bay.
After years of walking, driving, cycling (and once even rollerblading) past the mosaic wall of the public bathrooms on Beach Road, Skinny laMinx designer Heather Moore stopped to sketch the design, and realised that it was the first time she’d looked at it properly.
The result of taking the time to slow down and look closely at this unnamed piece of midcentury public art is the PROMENADE collaboration with The Wren Design.
This new collection of the Wren’s signature paper laptop sleeves, bags and wallets are screenprinted with two designs – MEANDER and PROMENADE – in playful colours that express the freewheeling joy of an aimless summer stroll along the Sea Point Promenade.
“Take a Story With You” is the Wren’s slogan, and the story of the PROMENADE collaboration with Skinny laMinx is reminder to slow down and take note of the everyday beauty available for all to see.
