Rivedoux bag is inspired by a gentle river flow and moments contemplating the eternal movement of nature. Sensing the tingling water through our hands, we dream of a journey driven by our souls. A river symbolizes the freedom we cherish - it is constantly turning and bending, but it just follows where it goes and reaches the ocean anyway.
Rivedoux bag is entirely crafted by hands, celebrating craft in the purest sense of the word. Through the skillful hands and personal connection of the craftsmen, Rivedoux is as lively as the Leinné woman who follows the call of her heart.
A bucket bag comes in a playful form which can be opened like a childhood treasure box.

The shape of the bag is formed by hand using a curving hand technique: hand-stitched from the top and then put into the sewing machine. The craftsman uses the hands to continuously stretch and iron. Some curves need spraying with water and ironing before sewing.
The forming process takes 18-20 hours and only 1 design can be made each week. It's a tactile experience: the craftsmen’s precise work is entirely judged by eye, done with their personal connection with the design and evaluated by their hands’ feel.
Inspection & Finishing
The handle is created with layers and sewn fabrics together, after that it is polishing the bag body. Any waste from sewing is carefully recycled.
For the bag to look effortless, the creators must blend expertise with an intense concentration to details.
