Retails Bags & Accessory Case Studies

Papersmith

Project: Pantone-matched dyed book bag

Stylish stationery and paper goods from Papersmith. This stationer has various shops in Bristol, Brighton and London. Focussing on great design, quality and standing out from the crowd, this organisation required a bespoke bag to sell in their various retail locations. Precise colour-match for the fabric which is Pantone matched and approved by the client prior to dying. The print is added to the fabric once it is dyed, then a woven label and pocket were expertly added during construction.

Soda

Project: Zipped case for tech cables

The School of Digital Age is a brand brightening up technical accessories and smart products. Offering accessories and pouches to organise tech cables that are stylish and durable. We supplied a neat zipped pouch in a unique shape. Pantone matched polyester for the external panels with a thin internal lining that also holds elasticated sections for dividing cables. The embroidery and zip pull were the finishing touches to make this premium custom-made pouch distinctive and stand out from the crowd.

Tate Galleries

Project: Fairtrade organic cotton tote bag

This simply branded tote bag for the pioneering Tate, compliments a portfolio of products that we supply for this gallery. Consistent with corporate brand guidelines, this Fairtrade Organic cotton bag is decorated by a simple woven label, detailed screen print and a customised swing tag which is attached to the bag that includes a barcode for scanning at the point of purchase.

MOMA

Project: Tote bag with overlaid print technique

Renowned Museum of Modern Art, also referred to as MOMA, shares great modern and contemporary art with the public as well as bringing together people with expertise in many areas. Using the opportunity to work on concepts with MOMA and creating our own art with them was an honour. We trialled many print applications on canvas, polypropylene and PVC. The result was a stunning bag with overlaid print.

Royal Opera House

Project:  All over digital print on tote bag

The Royal Opera House, Covent Garden – London, is a beautiful experience of ballet and opera. Stunning performances of music and dance, along with backstage tours and a great food destination require a quality souvenir memento. Taking away a piece of this experience has an expectation of a charming souvenir. Among a portfolio of stunning products that we create for this organisation is this tote bag with a digital print all over the bag panels of the costume tickets from previous performances.

Hauser & Wirth
