If you’ve seen the cover of our latest issue, you know we have a fondness for a nice leather and wool combo. And when it comes to wool, nothing beats the bold patterns and durability of Pendleton Wool, who supplied the wool fabric for this piece. This is definitely one of our favorite covers and one of our favorite projects!
Paired with a dark black leather and light leather handles, the wool is set off nicely and provides a luxe, dynamic texture. The bag features hammered copper rivets and the instructions include steps for installing rivets and saddle stitching by hand. This high-end bag is sure to last – and perhaps even get better as it ages – a true heirloom piece that we were sad to send back to designer Sara Cougill.
