Jay Ahr’s passion for textiles continues with the intricately embroidered Bandana series. From the Sanskrit word for ‘a bond’, the bandana is inspired by the colourful Indian kerchiefs. However, the bandana stands as a symbol of identity and multi-culturalism, truly personal to each group it represents. Whether
it is gangs in LA, Cowboys in the Midwest, Banditos in Mexico or Lycée students in Paris, it has been adopted, translated and imprinted with new meaning by many diverse communities with the passing of time.
This bag is a vintage Hermès Birkin 30 cast in Bleu de Galice, first produced in 2012. The stamped-grain, lightweight Epsom leather gives a structured relaxed contour. Featuring round top handles and a fold-over top with twist-lock closure. Detailed with palladium plated hardware it comes with a detachable clochette with two encased keys and a padlock.
The Bandana collection is paired with
Jay Ahr’s tongue-in-cheek twist on the Hermès Twilly, in a matching bandana pattern.
