The Taki has gravitas. It is a wide bottom standing pouch with a long curved zip, that allows it to peel open like and exotic fruit. It has a semi hardened base to provide stability for small bottles of Eau de Toilette or face cream.
When I was a girl, I saw the woodcut titled ‘Waratahs’ (1925) made by arguably one of Australia’s greatest artists, Margaret Preston. It left such a vibrant and stately impression on me that it remained core to my idea of art and expression. Despite my admiration for realism, I found her treatment of planes, contrast and abstract shading exciting. This design pays tribute to Margaret and her truly exceptional way of seeing.
Emperor is the colour of faux lustre on an emperor penguins back. A trick of the eye created by tiny white pointillist-like feather tips on a black ground.
TENUNO pouches are made from 100% Belgian linen, hand screen printed with the designs of Kathryn Sanderson. Both the outer fabric and the label have been screen printed using high quality water-based inks. YKK zippers and European thread have been matched to the colourway of the pouch resulting in a luxurious aesthetic. The fabric has some natural slubs and variations, these are part of the character of the cloth and add to its inherent beauty. The fabric is what is commonly referred to as a shirting weight and is not a rugged fabric. Please treat it accordingly.
