The Nose Bag

The Nose Bag, designed by Concrete Editions and produced by Maiko Dawson, is a voluminous bag that moves away from a generic tote, to create an elegant but highly versatile and functional unisex bag. 

Maiko who studied in Tokyo and at Cordwainers, London, has brought her knowledge and expertise of cutting and finish to produce a luxurious and beautifully crafted leather bag.

The Nose Bag is made from a single piece of full grain, butter soft calf leather sourced from Veneto, Italy. The handle is vegetable tanned shoulder leather, also from Italy. The tablet pouch, which comes with The Nose Bag, is made from the same leather and a durable YKK VISLON® zip.

In this collaboration the symbiosis of aesthetic and design impulses combined with Maiko’s skill as a maker have produced a durable, high quality, timeless piece.

Price on application, made to order
