OBSCURA X Island Workbench Bucket Bag
A light shade of grey, and a dash of pale pink combine to form a delicate hue of the sky, like the color of setting sun sprinkled on the surface of cement. Plain and quiet, without being dull.
OBSCURA has collaborated with Island Workbench, a homegrown brand and studio in Hong Kong, in producing this series of four cotton-cloth bags. Boasting designs based on the four standard models of the brand, they are made with a type of cloth in “powder grey” sourced specifically for this collaboration. Unlike the canvas normally used by this brand, the cotton canvas selected for this production is smoother in texture, being soft yet not so loose as to easily crumple. They come with cotton threads and cords in same color, as well as a sewn vegetable tanned leather label in naked color, embossed with both of our labels, giving birth to this unique series of bags.
This small bucket bag is the tiniest member in the series, but it is also the one that looks the most different. Its round bottom is extended upwards to form a tiny bag in the shape of a bucket, and by adjusting the length of its cord, it can serve either as a messenger bag or shoulder bag. When you carry it, its side is delicately curved, which might not look obvious at first glance. But it is the secret for giving it a touch of warmth in appearance. This extraordinary member of the series also comes with a sewn inside pocket allowing you to store your belongings in an organized manner within the small storage space.
