14 Sep BOLDNESS OF CHELSEA
Boldness means courage to seize one’s freedom. It certainly isn’t for everyone just like the daring Chelsea bag.
The journey for its production is momentous in every step. From the time the locals harvest the bamboo from the thriving mountains of Coron, Palawan, and then washed, boiled and dried, the peoples of Palawan are genuinely grateful for Mother Nature and her generosity. The bamboo is technically a grass and need not be replanted upon harvesting as it will grow a new shoot from its extensive root system. The artisan then starts shaving and carving the durable material and continues on to intricately dye and weave the Chelsea bag.

Handicraft belt bag are rare in itself and I’ve always thought that creating this can leave a memorable feel to all my buyers. And I can imagine a lot of eco-friendly fashionistas would think that it’s a better alternative to non-sustainable bags. Having said this, it’s important for us fashion lovers to be aware of our environment and have that social responsibility in the things we buy.
Like I said in many shout outs, it’s a collection with limited quantities and rarity makes it more exclusive and one of a kind which is not for everyone. And when it comes to something special, I believe it should always be made with love and passion. Hence the Chelsea bag was made, it is a belt bag with intricate handicraft design and belt was made with wooden bids thus make everything sustainable.
The sleek and compact end-product is empowering with its delicate grain and naturally anti-bacterial properties of its material as well as its striking design and functionality. Take Chelsea on your waist for a casual shopping spree or on your wrist on those formal events by the bay. Be bold. Be strong. Be free.
