“Mags Kandis delights in tossing ethnic elements into otherwise casual modern looks. Here … the intricate, high-contrast geometric patterns found on traditional mud cloth from Mali. The resulting bag, with its clean sculptural birch handles, blends African and modern Scandinavian influences with a whisper of the traditional allover patterning characteristic of Fair Isle knitting. … Mags knitted the bag shown here in rows, but you could work most of it in rounds if you prefer.”
