Detailed Description

The Venus, so named after the shell from which Venus was ‘born’. With its long curved zipper, Venus opens almost entirely flat and has two delightful little pull tabs to assist with the open and close. For pearls and other lovely things.

Monarch butterflies have an extraordinary migratory life cycle that sees them travel 3000 miles between Mexico and Texas then return to Mexico again. It is not just the distance that makes this trip extraordinary but that it is not a single butterfly that endures the distance but 5 generations of butterfly. I know, I know, it sounds incredible. But 5 different generations carry out the round trip and somehow, each generation knows their way home. To me, this is an astounding and beautiful example of the transfer of knowledge through instinct and a most captivating natural wonder. Petalouda, the Greek word for butterfly, captures the complex and indistinct patterns created from billions of monarch butterflies huddled together to wait out the winter.

Gênes is the colour of washed indigo jeans. Named in tribute to the city of Genoa in Italy and its role in the history of jean cloth.

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.
