Folk x The Modern House | New Collaboration
The mere mention of The Modern House has people dreaming over the latest architectural gem that may (or more likely may not) become theirs one day. Fair to say Matt Gibberd & Albert Hill have rewritten the rule book in estate agency with a radically unique approach - to market properties based on design merit, rather than geographic location.
Our collaboration has come about through a common appreciation of simple things that function beautifully, and beautiful things that function simply. These shared values led us to sketch a classic city bag, but to produce it with the care and attention of an artisan maker. Working with a Somerset leather factory and using dead-stock fabrics, we have created a new staple tote for The Modern House team. Designed to be carried or worn over shoulder, the bag neatly accommodates laptop/ keys/ card etc - the essentials of a team who spend their time around the most prestigious architectural design and most demanding of clients.
We are happy to now offer these limited run bags for sale via the Folk or The Modern House websites. Available in any colour, so long as its black.
“Simplicity in design, sustainability in fabrication, Somerset in manufacture - whats not to love?! We are so happy to create something useful and good looking for our friends at The Modern House” Cathal McAteer, Founder & Creative Director of Folk
“We’ve really enjoyed collaborating with the good folks from Folk on a project that’s about supporting British craftsmanship, timeless detailing, truth to materials and respect for the environment. It’s difficult to do the simple things well, and this versatile tote treads a careful line between being smart enough for a meeting and discreet enough for the night bus,” Matt Gibberd, Co Founder of The Modern House
