Description

Toronto-born, New York City–based designer Aurora James founded Brother Vellies in 2013 with a two-pronged focus on traditional African artistry and sustainability practices—for the artisans who handcraft each one-of-a-kind accessory, for the planet and, in turn, the customer. Made exclusively for The Met, this basket-woven handbag features skilled handiwork and the Museum's logo on the front.

This limited-edition bag celebrates The Costume Institute's two-part exhibition dedicated to American fashion. Part one, In America: A Lexicon of Fashion, considers the modern sartorial vocabulary of the United States, emphasizing the expressive qualities of dress. Opening May 5, 2022, part two, In America: An Anthology of Fashion, explores the development of fashion in the US as it relates to the complex and layered histories of the nation.
