Miranda bag is knitted in double layers. Starting from the base, which is knitted flat, the body is made by circular knitting. The use of Shetland wool and thick cable panels help provide support and give much denser and stiffer fabric to minimise sagging. Once you start, you’ll be surprised how logical the bag is constructed.
