The KITHARA Oblong bag is from sustainable Korean fashion brand KI LEE’s 2020 collection <POETIC UTILITY>. The bag is inspired by the musical instruments kithara and almglocken, and the collection embodies the brand’s core value of aesthetic utility and material poeticism.
As a part of the brand’s on-going commitment to sustainability and to exploring the design possibilities of innovative vegan materials, KI LEE has used haunji (mulberry-bast-and-cotton vegan leather) for all the products in the current collection. Thanks to the natural characteristics of mulberry bast fiber, Hanji is anti-bacterial, durable, lightweight, breathable, water repellent and bio-degradable. The use of this textile, which was developed by a local independent textile manufacturer, reflects the brand’s philosophy of poetic utility through its combination of Korean paper-making tradition of hanji and innovative textile technology. Comes with a canvas dust bag.
Material: Vegan leather (mulberry bast and cotton)
Measurements: Body: (including the handle) 13.5″ x 7.8” x 3.1″
