All of Thomas’ goods are meant to stand the test of time, and the materials that he works with are known for getting better with use. First, he sketches every new product before translating them into samples. It’s from these prototypes that he selects the standouts, which are the ones that eventually make their way into production. Sturdy canvas, soft suede, tough leather and the hardware to hold it all together become oversized totes, handheld clutches and yoga mat carriers, each with an added twist. His canvas totes are roomy for carrying a change of clothes and have added straps for a yoga mat or blanket; his clutches have an added strap for added security while carrying them; and his suede bag takes the classic tote shape and reimagines it in soft, supple material.
