I love a good bag, and I found the most gorgeous go-to-bag by Gyptian! Gyptian is a small design label based in Perth, and they make the prettiest bags.  

I'm pretty much obsessed with Gyptian's latest Triangle 2.0. Perfect in size, the Triangle 2.0 is made of smooth matt and grain leather, which I simply love. There is even a hidden/secret slot which could easily fits an iPhone or a card. Love it! More images here, on Gyptian's website.

I got a chance to e-meet the founder + designer, Salma El-Batanouny, based in Perth. Check Gyptian out :)

How did Gyptian started?

I have always had a slight obsession with creating things and was making jewellery and handbags while I was at university. Once I completed my degree in civil engineering I spent 5 years working on construction sites. I would find myself appreciating the beauty in the subtle geometric shapes of the structures we were building and would often wonder how I could implement this in everyday objects that I create. Thats when I officially started Gyptian.  

What was your dream job when you were a kid? 

From as early as I can remember I always wanted to be an astronaut and although that didn’t quite workout I’m very happy on the path I’m on. 

My dream bag in 3 words... 

Structured, unique and Gyptian of course ;)

Current obsession... 

DIY everything, love experimenting with concrete and other materials in my spare time.
