The Westernesse Bag was inspired by a Swedish autumn day, the weakening sunlight catching the orange and gold leaves in the trees by the lake, setting them aflame. The design captures these colours in bold textural stripes of grey, orange and yellow. 

The duffle bag provides a roomy hold-all which will carry everything you need for a day’s walk in the woods. The knitting is straightforward so the project grows quickly, and the interior is lined with a cotton/linen fabric for extra strength.
