Made With Production Leftover Fabrics

Blackhorse Lane Ateliers created this Ridley denim bag with leftovers from a small production run. The bag is made with a heavy 21-ounce Japanese selvedge fabric. It’s available in a limited run, in two options as denim with black leather, and denim with brown leather.

The Production And Naming Of The Bag

Production-wise it isn’t always easy to work with a heavyweight fabric as this 21 ounce, slow machine in production. So, Blackhorse Lane Ateliers picked a simpler construction so they could realize a beautiful product made of leftovers. Talking about sustainability. The bag is named after Ridley Road Market in Hackney, which encapsulates East London’s rich history of diversity, this selvedge bag has a vibrant character that will only improve over time.

Details Of The Denim Bag

The Ridley denim bag features leather top handles and an adjustable herringbone shoulder strap, and a horizontal leather strap on the back for slotting through handles on travel luggage. There’s also an internal pocket big enough to fit a 15″ laptop, a central Sam Browne fastening to close, lined and gusseted base ensures easy packing, and the bag includes a Blackhorse Lane Ateliers factory logo in leather on the front.

Fabric & Trims On The Bag

The fabric is sourced from the Nihon Menpu denim mill in Japan. All the fittings are 100% solid brass from Abbey England, while the leather is vegetable-tanned Bridle leather, and it has been hand-tooled. The internal seams have been buggy-lined, and the brass feet protect the bottom of the bag and provide structure for it to stand on its own.
