Hul le Kes
A bag for all your natural beauties such as flowers, wood, flax or veggies. Going to the local market and buying groceries has never been more fashionable and sustainable. The most sophisticated replacement for all plastics used to wrap your flowers in. In its lining you will find pockets for your wallet or any other small things you need to carry with you to the market. On the outside of the bag another pocket can be found.
The Hul le Kes Makoto Bag is made from 100% antique French linen in combination with a 100% cotton overstock lining. As we use overstock fabrics only the quality may differ over time, all bags are therewith limited. The bags all have a unique registration number, but do not come with a Hul le Kes passport or deposit. Of course you may send your bag to us by the time you are done with it; we will then take care of it being recycled or upcycled (depending on the condition).
"We humans remove flowers from the natural state by cutting them off. It’s therefore necessary to transform it into something even more beautiful, so that the life of these flowers and plants will not be meaningless"
Azuma Makoto (in The Green Gallery)
This bag is named after the Japanese floral artist Azuma Makoto. In 2005 Azuma adopted a new form of flower arranging which he called botanical sculpture. He became world-famous with his idiosyncratic floral works, such as the frozen ice sculpture bouquets that he made for Dries van Noten among others. At Hul le Kes we love flowers and floral artists such as Azuma Makoto. All our garments are named after an artist we love, admire or want to remember in any way.
