The Gray Lady
Ladylike, but completely modern this gray wool handbag with orange zipper is for gals who care about style, design and the environment. Designer Josh Jakus uses excess industrial wool from factories to create these slightly-roomier-than-a-clutch handbags. When not in use this minimalist purse can be unzipped so it lays completely flat for optimal storage. Self-locking orange zipper. Made in the San Francisco Bay Area.

- the maker
Josh Jakus is a Berkeley, California-based designer dedicated to making experiential connections between form and function. When a person uses one of his products, they naturally encounter the way it was conceived and developed. Achieving such connections requires a strict material sensibility--using materials in their simplest form so intrinsic qualities show through, and a rigorous design efficiency that strives to get the most impact out of the fewest moves.
Josh founded his design practice in 2005 as a way of continuing his lifelong interest in the nature of structure, space and materials. Though his design practice is driven more by intellectual curiosity than pragmatism, Josh is still happiest making things that are meant to be used. An architect by training with an Masters of Architecture from UC Berkeley, Josh uses his understanding of the built environment and how it is inhabited to inform his designs, and he hopes his products will help foster a more intuitive understanding of all objects in the people who use them.
