OVERVIEW & DIMENSIONS

The largest TTTHING this has been designed to perfectly fit a larger Moleskine sketchbook and or a 10.2 inch iPad.

Like it's smaller siblings it also has two zippers, with the top pocket being full size and the second, bottom pocket being 8cm deep.

This shallower bottom pocket is perfect for pens (or Apple Pencil), charging cables etc.

You can also add a short strap to attach keys or use as a clutch with a wrist strap.

FEATURES

YKK ZIPPERS

The Sketch TTTHING uses #5 YKK coil zippers with a reversed slider (the same are used on the pockets in my bags).

This ensures many years of reliable service and also simplifies repairing or replacing zippers in the future if ever required.

The sliders are rounded so easy to use, and if you prefer can be changed to either cord pulls (as used on the main zipper of my bags) or a wrist strap so you can use it as a clutch.

LOST & FOUND (& ARCHIVE)

Make it easy for people to be kind

Each and every product now has a subtle handprinted lining inside the internal pockets (so not visible unless you open the pocket).

This gives details of where the Sketch TTTHING was made (so great when giving to friends and family overseas) and details about the Lifetime+ Guarantee.

It also has a handwritten Serial Number which links to the new online archive.

By entering the details you can view photos of it being made, how long it's been in use and even calculates the cost per day (which gets lower the longer it is used).

But perhaps most importantly this also makes it possible to have your product returned should anyone ever find it!

PRICING TRANSPARENCY

Durability, sustainability, ethics and supporting other local businesses are all very much part of the way I choose to run my business.

This certainly isn't the cheapest way to make a bag, though doing things the right way does mean you'll have a bag that you'll love for many years to come.

Below you'll see the cost of every element that directly contributes to making my bags, hopefully by being completely transparent and sharing this information we can as a society start having a conversation about the true cost of the objects we create and use.

This is the first version of this, so happy to hear any suggestions and/or answer any questions you might have; thanks for your interest!


LIFETIME+ GUARANTEE

I'm very proud of the quality of the bags I create so now offer the Lifetime+ Guarantee on both new and existing products.

Rather than just covering loose stitching and/or manufacturing faults this new guarantee now also covers upcycling your bag into a new product/s when it does eventually wear out!

This is only possible because I use the best materials to originally make my bags and while I've also designed them to be readily repaired (such as zippers and printed fabric) at a certain point often a bag is no longer serviceable.

At this point rather than consigning a bag to landfill (or the back of a cupboard) I now encourage the materials in the bag that are still useful to be reworked (or upcycled) into a new product/s such as a pouch or smaller bag.

Along with greatly increasing the useful lifespan of the materials used it also allows the emotional connection with the original bag to be retained, for example if it was a birthday gift or if originally purchased for a particularly memorable trip. 

If you've an existing bag you no longer use please get in touch and we can discuss what might be possible :)


 

MAKE2MEND

While I've always been more than happy to repair and renovate my bags I've recently put extra effort into refining the design and way I sew them to make this as easy as possible; I call this the MAKE2MEND ETHOS

For example I only use standard YKK zippers in my bags so they can be readily repaired or replaced if needed, either by myself or pretty much any competent sewer.

I'll be posting more about this on the blog soon ....

DELIVERY

MADE-TO-ORDER BAGS

Most bags are made-to-order so need to be sewn before being delivered.

STANDARD POST is FREE and generally takes about ten days to be sewn and ready to deliver or collect.

Selecting EXPRESS POST ensures your bag arrives as quickly as it can (I will also do my best to expedite sewing your bag).

If you need your bag to arrive by a particular date just let me know and we can work out the best way to make this happen!


ALREADY SEWN BAGS

A small number of bags are marked as ALREADY SEWN and will be posted the sameday (if a weekday) so usually arrive within a day or two.

SUSTAINABILITY

Orders are delivered in a locally made recycled cardboard box, with recycled tissue paper and paper packing tape.

This is the best balance I've found between protecting your bag and reducing impact on the environment.

The only plastic used is the Express Post tape from Australia Post (though looking for alternatives).
