Mauro Bianucci never set out to be a "green" designer. The 35-year-old architect and founder of Carga, a line of wool felt bags, didn't have soil pollution or Al Gore on his mind when he made his first prototype about a year ago. "I was searching for a bag to carry my things around in, and I had some industrial felt left over from a project," he said.
Bianucci's androgynous, logo-free satchels ($175 to $375 at retail) are simply constructed, using gray industrial wool felt, aluminum rivets and vegetable-dyed leather straps. The aesthetic is urban, minimalist and functional.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
