Welcome to my next Collaboration - it's with Melbourne based Tana & Hide and their lovely Lunch Bag Leather Clutch. I had mine custom made.
Tana & Hide is the brainchild of Georgia and was created from two ideas. One was to be able to do something for the street children who spend hours selling things to tourists in Bali, Indonesia. These children don't attend school in order to help their families survive. Georgia had been drawing bags and ideas for leathergoods which she longed to bring to fruition. She then had the fantastic idea of merging the two ideas together, making beautiful designer leather bags in Indonesia where she could support families and children. Some Tana & Hide bags are hand made by Georgia and others are made by masterful leather craftsmen in Bali.
Tana & Hide has developed relationships with tailors that have small businesses. These businesses train and provide excellent facilities for their employees and take on apprenticeships with young Balinese workers interested in learning the art of leathercraft.
Tana & Hide have over 100 coloured leathers to choose from, so it was easy to pick the style of bag I wanted and the colour I was after. I finally have a white bag to wear with my Burberry booties that I love to much.
