Karel Shoulder Bag

With the aim of achieving a design that was strong but simple, designer Klaartje Martens’ Karel Shoulder Bag succeeds at being a subtle and refined shoulder bag for everyday use. Approaching the bag as a puzzle, Martens folded one piece of fabric to generate the form while minimizing stitching and optimizing function. With an adjustable strap, the bag is appropriate for a variety of uses and the waxed canvas body is durable and attractive. Adding a pop of color, the interior is outfitted in bright cobalt poplin lining. As for the name, her father Karel (Martens, the graphic designer) visited Maharam with one of the bags on his shoulder, and from then on it was called it the Karel Shoulder Bag.
