UMs developed from two creative challenges: The first, to make use of the unique properties of pressed wool felt, and the second, to transform a flat surface into a volume using only the simplest of operations. As it happens, these challenges turned out to be mutually beneficial and resulted in objects that are as practical as they are pleasing. When unzipped, UMs lay completely flat for dry cleaning and easy storage — and when zipped, they become inspired forms with inherent functionality.
UMs come in one quintessential color: gray. That’s because they’re sewn from two layers of industrial wool felt made from factory excess. As a natural material that might otherwise go to waste, most would consider it eco-friendly. All UMs are cut and sewn in the San Francisco Bay Area.
“Quick shipping, well designed site, local australian business, and you stock brands that are uncommon here.”
“What i liked, was that online it said the handbag wasn\'t in stock, that it would be 4-5 days, and yet... Whacko, it arrived 3 days later. Thats fair more than i\'d ever expect. And... Even though i thought i was buying on backorder i still got the 20% off and no cost for shipping. Nice.”
“Absolutely great service and great products.”
“Yes i definitely would. I originally tried to purchase the backpack on the herschel website only to be denied at payment process time.
