A LIMITED EDITION WITH TEXTILES
BY RAF SIMONS FOR KVADRAT
Known for its handmade bags and accessories of high-quality leather, TSATSAS is expanding its repertoire of materials and entering into an extraordinary union with textiles. The project SO_FAR presents five limited versions of the tote bag FLUKE, each in a combination of calfskin and fabrics from the Raf Simons collection of Danish textile company Kvadrat.
SO_FAR represents a new approach in the development of TSATSAS. While to date the label’s work has focused on natural leather and a modern interpretation of traditional crafted leather, translated into contemporary designs, in their work with textiles designer Esther Schulze-Tsatsas and Dimitrios Tsatsas are treading new paths.
When in 2014 Kvadrat launched its first fabric collection with Raf Simons, the designer duo was thrilled with the patterns, colours and quality. “When we got the chance as the first bag label worldwide to work exclusively with the fabrics of the Kvadrat/Raf Simons collection, our focus was on transferring the contrast between textiles and leather into a new aesthetic,” explains Esther Schulze-Tsatsas.
The designers see the project SO_FAR as a separate edition intended to complement the existing TSATSAS collection, which is limited in terms of numbers. Starting from January 2017, five versions of the iconic FLUKE bag are available at selected international stores and via www.tsatsas.com in an edition of 50 each.
