Product story

Elna Marie Fortune’s unique woven tote bags are a subtle nod to the colours and shapes of iconic London features. From the colours of the Underground and historic brick architecture, to the bridge that spans the River Thames just a stone’s throw from the Atelier100 Hammersmith store.

Manufacturing story

Forgoing the canvas material and ironically disposable nature of the ubiquitous tote bag for UK-sourced wool, Elna has handwoven this collection on a loom at her Holborn workshop; each bag takes 6 hours (and a lot of patience) to weave by hand.
