Part of the Matthew Calvin collaboration ‘Union’ with Edinburgh based MAiK, the Union Circles fabric print showcases Cat & Matthew’s combined love for geometry. This bag can be used as a pencil case or mini make up bag. It’s surprisingly roomy and can hold your handbag essentials or a selection of stationary and cables.
The outer layer of the make up bag is 100% organic cotton, which has been printed in the UK using water-based pigment inks. The inks we use do not contain any harmful substances. Our bags are handmade in Edinburgh by a social enterprise that focuses on ethical small-batch manufacturing. The placement of the print will be different on each pencil case; we use the whole roll so there is minimal fabric waste.
The finer details:
W:20.5cm, H:8cm, D:6cm
Outer: 100% GOTS certified organic cotton
Lining: Poly-cotton (35% cotton, 65% polyester) – sourced in the UK.
The bag is finished with a brass YKK zip.
Matthew Calvin x MAiK
Introducing Union, the collaboration between Matthew Calvin and MAiK. With a shared ethos when it comes to responsibly sourced materials and working with factories that support and uplift their communities, and a love for all things geometric, when Matthew & Cat met through a mutual friend, it was clear that a collaboration between the two brands would be the perfect fit.
Combining Matthew & Cat’s shared love of simplicity, colourful prints and geometric shapes, the Union collaboration was born. Our combined collection of jewellery, prints, pouches and pencil cases have all been ethically made in London and Edinburgh, and feature classic Matthew Calvin shapes and mechanisms, with MAiK’s signature colourful, geometric style. We hope you love the collection as much as we do!
