Bags by Laura Spring

Glasgow-based textile designer Laura Spring creates bold, fun accessories using bright geometric prints. I first fell for her work when I came across her Weather Collection. Launched in 2011, The Weather Collection takes its inspiration from everyone's favourite talking point, placing patterns of windmills, umbrellas and the sun on a range of suitcases, rucksacks and totes (pictured at the bottom). More recently she's created a great range of duffel bags using a simple linear screenprinted pattern (above and below), and she launches them in a wider range of colours and sizes at Pulse 2013 this weekend in London. Check out the short video at the bottom giving a glimpse into her process.
