SCULPTURAL BAGS WITH STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY
Inspired by the way bone meets skin, we create sculptural & structural leather accessories. The Common Knowledge bags are crafted with Italian leather. Instead of simply a vessel for your belongings, our bags function as a supernatural extension of the body.
