  • Details

    Elephant Ear series bags are cut from a single piece of heavy cotton canvas bound around the edges with ecru cotton and folded up, with an ear at each side, riveted through to the back with a brass eyelet. An inner cotton bag is fastened into the open edge of this cradle, which supports and protects the bag, while leaving it open to expand from the sides, and allowing the cradle to also hold a folded pullover, or a newspaper.

    The Elephant Ear Pouch is a small version of the backpack with a drawstring closure on a rope strap that can be worn across the body. The pouch is dyed in hadal brown, which has natural color variation. 

    Tender’s designer William Kroll puts a lot of care into their research, design, manufacture, and wear. Just as a gardener tends to a vegetable patch, or a shepherd is the tender to a flock of sheep, Tender has the hope that it's customers will live with their products, wearing them hard, but respecting their provenance and the stories they have to tell. The British-made clothes and accessories are manufactured in small factories, ateliers, and homes around the country, exploring new approaches to traditional weaving, making, tanning, and dyeing.
