The Jetlagmode Black Crochet Party Bag is made of Cotton + Czech beads + Recycled wood.
This piece would dance with you, that’s why the name is Party Bag, it has that beautiful movement when you walk.
First, the body of the bag is made, created by Amparo (our crochet expert) completely by hand, with cotton thread. It has a solid base in 3 mm recycled wood, to give structure to the product, and is covered in velvet of the same tone. This part takes approx 2-3 days. In simultaneous Yuliana develops the handle in Czech beads with an invisible cotton padding that gives comfort when you hold the bag, it takes about 1 day. At the same time Laura, Jetlagmode’s loom expert, makes the ends of the purse straps and the cascade of the base in Czech beads. It takes about 3 days. Finally, all the separated parts are passed to Edilma, our artisan leader, who is in charge of putting all the pieces together and make the final touches, making sure that each product has the best quality. Putting everything together usually takes around 2 or more days, depending on the challenges that arises. The development of 100% handmade products always has different challenges that must be dealt with in order for the product to meet our quality standards.
This work of art, which took us almost 5 months to design, explore and master it, is one of the most special pieces in our collection.
