THE MELISSA X CSC
NB. Each bag will come with a Melissa x CSC drawstring dust bag complete with care instructions.
The two small holes at the bottom of the bag are a mark of what Melissa call “the point of injection”: where the PVC is injected into the mould. Their Technical team always look for the best place to have these holes to ensure they're as subtle as possible. All Melissa shoes have this mark too - it's a sign of the hard work and thorough process that has been undertaken to make their products.
Here at CSC, we only ever work with people and brands who we admire. There are a lot of parallels between Melissa and The Cambridge Satchel Company. Melissa shoes were first designed, made in and inspired by Brazil and that is true to this day, just as we were inspired by traditional British bags and continue to produce in the UK. What could be more fun than a classic satchel that smells like bubblegum?
“A collaboration needs two strong partners
with unique design elements; taking our timeless shape and mixing it with Melissa's iconic
raw material makes perfect sense. We are
also happy that this partnership offers a vegan alternative to our customers. Moreover,
the PVC used is recyclable as well as 99%
of the factory's industrial waste is recycled.”
