Eyelet Bin in Black (Butt Stitch)

Butt Stitch Bin in Black by leather-worker Otis Ingrams strikes a modern silhouette drawing inspiration from mid-century forms, in particular the Bauhaus modernism of The Carl Aubock Workshop in Vienna during the postwar era. A strong consideration of form and material is imbued in this functional piece, with an elegance that suits a variety of domestic settings.

This utilitarian collection by Otis Ingrams reflects his genuine commitment to classic forms and materials, as well as a deep interest in people and their use of functional objects within the domestic realm. The clean lines of the piece are interrupted only by an elegantly stitched seam using waxed linen and a solid cast brass equestrian crupper loop for the handle.
Material: Italian vegetable tanned buttero leather, waxed linen thread and solid brass
cm: Width 26cm, Depth 26cm, Height 38cm
inches: Width 10.2in, Depth 10.2in, Height 15in
Care Instructions: Use a neutral conditioner, cream or balm, to clean occasionally

Due to the use of natural leather, variations in tone may occur from batch to batch. With care, natural leather will develop a unique and beautiful patina over time.

The leather is first hand cut and then stitched together around the base and along its seams using a traditional butt stitch using waxed linen thread. The edges are burnished and then wax, before riveting the solid cast brass loop into place.
