Artisan's Cherish Christmas Showcase: Day 9

Cherish day 9 brings us the gorgeous Tennyson bags by Kristin Tennyson. The Tennyson Bags are fresh, unique and fun, incorporating reclaimed vintage fabrics, leather, seatbelt webbing and a variety of other industrial materials.

"Since I'm based in Cairns, I like the fact that regional makers of distinction supply both artisan and KickArts Shop. Kristin Tennyson migrated from Canada, lives in Cairns and is an accomplished painter with a strong affinity for mid twentieth-century textiles, which she sources to handcraft her bags. Admixtures of strapping, hose fittings and industrial buckles are witty features: a Tennyson bag definitely raises smiles. Her styles keep evolving and the look is hand-made but on trend. In Cairns our Tennyson collectors come back regularly, admitting their weakness for these quirky accessories, each one an original. I love mine for its leather straps made from repurposed belts with safety hooks, and of course its funky sixties furnishing fabric. Big smile!"
- Ingrid Hoffmann, Director - KickArts Contemporary Arts

A wide range of Tennyson bags is currently available for purchase in our Fortitude Valley and South Bank design stores.
