Axel Mano 30s Crossbody Bag - Blue Gum
One of our favourites!
A lightweight, super-strong shoulder bag, compact yet surprisingly roomy, equally at home on a weekend walk or dressed up for a special occasion.
With the demand for smaller bags, we found that there are still some essentials that we like to carry as well as the phone, such as sunglasses, keys and a compact wallet. The wide base of the 30s bag easily accommodates all of these in a small format, which zips closed.
The self-coloured strap is removable, so you can use the bag as a clutch, or mix and match with other Axel Mano long or short detachable shoulder straps in contrasting colours. *Orange strap pictured not included - though available to purchase here.
Handmade in Sydney by Axel Mano, using supple webbing from Melbourne, with the strength of seat belts but a very soft touch.
- One large interior compartment with zip closure
- Key fisher
- Light-coloured taffeta lining so the contents are easily visible
- Detachable shoulder strap (currently wide strap in Blue Gum only)
** Please note that each piece is made by hand and as a result sizing and colours may vary slightly.
Size: 15 H x 23 L x 8 D cm
Body: Webbed polyester woven in Melbourne
Lining: Japanese taffeta
Accessories finish: Nickel
About Axel Mano:
'Axel Mano' is the design partnership of Susie Meekin & Graham Clarke who apply the same philosophy when designing bags as they do hats, using simple materials in an inventive yet practical way, whilst at the same time reflecting the mood of the season. Susie comes from a design background and studied millinery in London before returning to Australia to open the 'Axel Mano' store in Woollahra, Sydney, with Graham, an artist and designer, in 1999. All the current bags in the range are made of industrial recyclable webbing, which is very hard-wearing and is used for seatbelts and other heavy weight-bearing uses, yet is soft to the touch and lightweight. The bag fittings are sourced in Italy, and every model has pockets for mobile phones and other essentials, with gorgeous linings of brightly coloured silks and cottons.
Every piece is handmade in Australia
