Hawla Tote

Doug Johnston

The Hawla Tote is one of Doug Johnston's original bag forms.  Useful and beautiful, it is made of 100% cotton cord, stitched on vintage industrial zig-zag sewing machines.  Now also available in its smaller counterpart - the Smawla.

All pieces are lovingly handmade and hand-formed one at a time in Doug Johnston's studio in Brooklyn, NY. The technique is itself based on the ancient method of making ceramic coiled pots as well as coiled basketry.

Because each piece is handcrafted, the actual item you receive will have its own unique marks, stitching, shape and details that might vary slightly from the photos shown. The rope used is raw cotton, as a result the products will soften with use though they will still hold their shape.

Smawla measures 10” x 18” x 12”

Hawla measures 21" x 11" 15"
