Elza and Joost from the Amsterdam based brand Atelier de l’Armee are making the most amazing bags from old and deadstock camouflage jackets and denim fabrics. Over the years they collected many different types of camouflage from all over the world. Here is an overview of the ones that pass through their hands either as cloth or as a garment. My personal favourites are the German (flecktarn), Korean and Swiss camouflage patterns. Very nice overview and check out their great handmade brand!
