Swag & Tassel
Swag and Tassel is a luxury British handbag and accessories label that pays homage to individuality and creativity. By using antique & vintage carpets and hand selected leathers Welsh designer Sophie Wordsworth creates an exciting juxtaposition between old and new.
Using the rich history of the materials, ranging from carpets handwoven by tribes in Northern Persia, to colourful soft leathers sourced in East London, fresh individual and stand alone pieces of couture are created. The use of leather and carpets made from 100% wool combine two very natural materials which both complement each other and both have rich artisan histories.
The creation of a wearable object, made through the exploration of hard and soft materials, which focus on the themes and ideas of distortion and movement have been at the centre of this collection from Wilna Venter.
Wearable objects which challenge traditional perspectives of jewellery, coupled with an extensive exploration of resin and related materials as a vehicle to capture this, have been informed by the visual aesthetic of the playground and the Memphis movement.
