These leather pouches are inspired by modernist artwork and each one is made from a unique roo leather. I created my Modernist Series because I am passionate about supporting Australian Arts and wanted to make my own contribution to the funding of the Australian Arts scene. I am doing this by donating 10% of every sale of the Modernist Series to CAN WA, the Community Arts Network of Western Australia. I chose this organization because of their honesty and transparency in their community arts projects and artist support. In 2016, for every $1 investested in their regional programs they created a return of $18.56. Arts funding creates social good as well as economic good and can help communities flourish. No two bags of the Modernist Series are the same and each pouch in limited edition is etched with its unique number from 1 - 350 on the wrist strap of the bag, along with details of the Australian Arts you are supporting through your purchase.
