Ava Backpack in Sienna
The Ava Backpack in Sienna is a work of art. A drawstring backpack in soft woven leather that feels like it was plucked from a vintage photograph. With the charm of a bucket bag, a circular base to sit upright, and two braided shoulder straps for function. Evoking the style of a sun-drenched European beach holiday, yet polished for cooler city days. Throw everything in and hit the road. Handwoven leather with drawstring closure. Cotton lining with inner pocket. Handwoven in India, measures 11” x 13”.
Bembien is a line of accessories hand made by artisans around the world. Founder Yi-Mei Truxes was inspired to create a line of bags evoking that same nostalgia and perennial style. It had to be just right, and six years at Vogue had trained her well. She eventually found it in a small village of artisan weavers in Bali. And thus, Bembien was born.
