Whose Bag? Isabel Varés Orive

What’s your bag story?
I got this bag when I moved to London. I usually cycle, so I found it was the best way to carry everything. I bought it from Tokyo Bike and each one is signed by the craftsman/woman. Mine was made by ‘Debby’. I love it!

What would you never leave the house without?
Predictable, but I’d never leave home without my keys and wallet. However, a couple of times I’ve found myself in the London jungle with lots of Euros from my latest trip to Spain – and £0! Not a good look!

Tell us about your small bag?
I made it! I run a little project @bajoaporpan where I make tote bags, in order to reduce the use of plastic ones. I’ve also worked with other architects to make textile pieces for short projects.
