RedFlag Design “Embraces the Grey”

All images from

Vancouver’s talented and ultra chic Red Flag Design has unveiled their Spring collection of totes, wallets and duffels featuring overdyed sailcloth in subtle tones of grey.

The material hints at its first life, as the dye shows fascinating variations in tone, varying from charcoal, to taupe and even in to purple and aqua.  At Tartooful we love the wallets that feature “tattoo” images of octopus or whales – the large version makes a perfectly chic evening clutch.

Each piece is designed and made with RedFlag’s trademark uncompromising care and precision, so you can expect outstanding performance and impressive longevity from each bag.

We have a wonderful array of RedFlag at Tartooful right now, so come visit & see it for yourself…
