This bag was the first attempt to use the experience I had as a furniture maker and apply it to the creation of a furniture like object to carry and use in everyday life.
The dimensions of the bag are 28cmX23cmX8cm (length X high X depth) with round edges.
The endings and handle covers are made of red mahogany wood, recycled of a 60 year old staircase.
The opening is secured with a small linear magnet, incorporated into the mahogany ending.
The casing is made of cherry veneered mdf, treated for protection with a water based varnish.The cover is made of oak veneered pine onto a cotton cloth. The cover and the red mahogany decoration is unvarnished.
The inside of the bag is coated with 5mm of bright colour felt (orange, purple, turquoise or red, depending on the availability on the market).
In the interior of the bag, where visible and there where the felt joins the wood, there is a covering with a small metallic measuring tape.
The handles are made of reinforced brown suede leather, which length is enough for carrying the bag by the elbow.
The weight of the bag is around 1.1 kgr.
