Admittedly, we haven't made any origami since our brief, grade-school obsession with Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes
(RIP Sadako). But when we discovered The Little House
's line of FHOLD bags, we gotta admit — we felt a little bit of the old obsession coming back.
See, each bag in the FHOLD Collection is made from a single piece of leather, folded in various intricate designs, and held together at strategic points with rivets. No snaps, buckles, zips, or seams — pretty rad, right?
For as much as people throw around the word "minimalism," these bags are the real deal. Simple, yet ingenious, and handmade right here in the heart of NYC, each one's a perfectly understated piece of art — oh, and you can use 'em to lug your gym shoes around, too. Avant-garde doesn't get any better than that.
