They start their life as a giant canvas which is cut into pieces to create unique bags as individual as their owners.
Messy bags can be used by anyone for anything! Each is one of a kind.
Your messy bag comes with a tag telling you the name of the canvas it came from and what edition it is of that canvas.
Hand painted with eco friendly, non toxic ink onto organic cotton canvas, Inkling products are designed to not only be useful, practical pieces of joy, they’re also low impact, sustainable and earth friendly. Each bag is one of a kind, no two bags are the same, nor can they be recreated.
Notes from the Artist "The Rains"
"It was painted early February, 2020 on a gloomy, overcast day. In Far North Queensland summer means the wet season. The clouds get big and fat and heavy and the rain falls from them for hours, days, even weeks on end.
I chose to start this new series with this canvas as I think it’s easily over looked. I LOVE this canvas! It’s fun and bright and cheerful. It’s the opposite of what inspired its creation and I get a kick out of its deliberate contrariness. This was maybe one of the quickest canvases I’ve finished this year. I love its heavy and fast brush strokes, naive, childlike shapes and the colourful bubbles floating among the large rain clouds. The detail on this canvas was quite large, intentionally, so each bag only has a small piece of the cloud and rain storm on it. Cutting a canvas up and seeing where all the shapes end up and how they transform and turn into something altogether different is my favourite part of the process."
