JS | Cherchbi
For Autumn / Winter 2012 we are collaborating with CHERCHBI, a British leather goods brand who specialise in crafting modern designs in a robust, traditional quality. Their inspiration is drawn from Britain’s creative, cultural and manufacturing heritage. All their bags are made in Britain using British materials.
For this collaboration CHERCHBI have delved into our archive, to an era when our fine knitwear was marked with ink stamps rather than sewn-in labels. After searching through the vast reincarnations of the stamp, the ‘J. Smedley’ design was selected. This carved wooden example from mid 19th century is one of the earliest in the archive even pre-dating the first John Smedley patents.
This collaborative collection features three CHERCHBI bags, the Barrett Flap Brief, Blake Overnight Bag and iPad Sleeve.
