Let's read
Izzy's view

I (we) really wanted to create a bag that was fun, colourful but also practical because who wants to be walking around with something that isn’t easy to use?!
One of the most important aspects of designing Checkmate was to really emphasise sustainable fashion. Every piece of fabric this bag is made from is either fabric waste or deadstock, the only new things are the metal ware and the zip. 
I hope you love her as much as I do, she’s a bag for all seasons and I can’t wait to see you style her!
