We love wearing our heart on our bag here at DEED bags. And we also love saving beautiful fabric from landfill. The HEARTS Collection combines both of these passions with our appliqued and richly layered hearts.
The appliqued hearts are all hand crafted from cotton, linen and/or silk fabric remnants which have been sourced from some of the world's premium interior design houses and fabric mills. Emma, our lead designer and maker, sources the fabrics directly from the factories, as well as upcyling fabric sample books from interior design houses, including Liberty of London. She also sources fabrics from private collections and French flea markets in the South of France.
The layered hearts are made from some of the smallest slivers of fabric and ribbon remnants from our DEED bags cutting room floor - which dovetails beautifully with our aim to achieve as close as possible to zero waste in the studio.
All hearts are sewn onto our signature DEED bag with its strong handles and two big internal pockets. Prices for bags in the HEARTS Collection will vary depending upon the trims and finishes, as well as the material used for the base bag.
Please do not hesitate to contact Emma in the studio (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like a bespoke HEARTS bag made, as she has many fabrics in her Aladdin's cave which are not yet on the website.
