Athens, I Love/Hate You

I'm not this excited about all my purchases. It was meant to happen when I stopped at Anna Economou's corner at Whitebox the other day. A bag is a very personal choice, it's a tool as well as a statement. This one had it all to the max: enough space to fit all of my personal stuff and a loud and clear message "I Love Hate Athens". My feelings exactly about this city I spend my days and nights at. Crazy. Mental. Carefree. Careless...

It is very well made and produced in very small numbers. Moreover I met the maker who shared about the theme: "I decided to make this series of bags whilst travelling. There are 'Love this city' and 'Love that city' bags everywhere, except Athens. Maybe because us living here have this love/hate relationship with it... The sewing is in capital letters and kinda angry, intense, full of passion. It's on purpose."

All I can say is that I am very passionate about this bag right now.

@ναταλια - Anna Economou doesn't have selling points outside Athens but she'd be happy to talk to you and even send you a bag by post. You can reach her on 0030-6938-053-261.

Thank you:)
Do you know how does it costs?

Alecca Rox said...

@ναταλια - The one I bought costs 80 euros. I think her price range in all bags is between 38 and 130 euros.
