Lauren Manoogian Crochet Bowl Bag, available in black here, shot on a beach in Malibu in April 2018.
Some pieces stick in your mind. When I first saw this bag, I fell in love instantly. So simple yet so perfect. I can’t do proper ladylike bags, I prefer totes and often opt for the perfect cotton ones I’ve received as packaging.
But sometimes it’s time to grow up. This hand-crocheted bag has a relaxed structure but is still thickly knit, and big enough to fit a life into. And yes, I can carry it on my shoulder.
Lauren Manoogian is a New York-based designer whose brand has grown from material experiments to knitwear focused ready-to-wear over the course of the last decade. She has an intuition about combining modernity and hand craft. She pays close attention to the authenticity of her materials; organic yarns (the bag is made in Peru of 60% Cotton, 40% Linen) in earthy color palettes developed with independent dyers who use natural, plant-based materials—sometimes she grows them herself. Mannogian forms strong, long-term relationships with everyone in the supply chain, emphasizing the importance of making her ethics theirs too. Check her work out here.
