Made from fine-grain, New Zealand cowhide leather, this sumptuous leather has an amazing ability to maintain its folded form in a way not dissimilar to paper. For this bag, it has been sewn into pleats to create a sculptural tote that concertinas together at the top. 'Pleats' is unlined to accommodate its folds, but it contains a special pocket for your phone, a detachable internal purse, and a neat little hook for your keys. Functional as well as beautiful, just as we like it.

Kohl & Co
Kohl&Co bags are designed to pair elegance with function, to bring beauty and simplicity into the everyday. All our bags are hand-made in our small workroom in beautiful Nelson on the South Island of Aotearoa.
Kohl&Co’s designs are inspired by the makers, the mothers, the wanderers, the dreamers. By those who are just busy getting things done, and by all the vibrant individuals I am lucky enough to encounter every day.
And who is Kohl&Co? Well, that’s Louise. Mother, maker, partner, friend, and lover of creativity and exploration.
The name, Kohl&Cochineal, stems from Louise's appreciation of the deep, charcoal of the leather she loves to use, and the incredible vibrancy of the cochineal red that reminds her of adventures in faraway places.
