Fabric dominates the world of fashion, and for a good reason too. But when it comes to conceiving accessories that aren't necessarily worn, designers can branch out to explore a range of harder materials.

Supplii Toolbox purses are reputedly the first all-bentwood handbags, boasting clever engineering that requires no additional components, with the exception of the clasps. The layered sheets of molded lumber act together as its own hinge, allowing for a little flexibility to open the pocketbook up.

Inside, lidless boxes become home to your wallet, mobile phone, your keys and your makeup. The tall and slender model is the Toolbox_Clutch, while a shorter and broader version is the Toolbox_Tote. Inspired initially by the utility of Bauhaus, both Supplii Toolbox purses exude a natural richness through the sculpted timber and embody organic forms that fit against the human body.
