Simona - Zip Hold-all
The Simona Zip Hold-All is Katcha Bilekâ€™s response to the need for colour and Size Does Matter. This design comes with a zip (in a colour of your choice where possible), and rivet detail. The Hold-All is hand-crafted in our Bristol studio from the largest lorry inner-tubes we can lay our hands – but theyâ€™re running out fast, so get your order in before they go – forever!
Welcome to Katcha Bilek on Bouf!
The bags and purses are made of truck inner tubes. The straps on them are old car seatbelts. The belts are made of bike tyres.
All these materials are collected locally and everything (except the trimmings) is cut and sewn by hand in my Bristol workshop without the use of industrial machinery or exploited labour!
The materials make a great alternative to animal products and their properties mean that each product is unique: a bag can be cut from the same pattern as another but the outcome will always be different.
