IISE in Archive Journal Issue #1

The whole idea for IISE came about when we visited Korea for the first time since the 4th grade 2 years ago. We saw a Buddhist monk wandering around in front of us wearing a sack like bag with knotted straps and in clothes that haven't changed in hundreds of years. Watching him walk the next to sleek skyscrapers but also traditional korean hanok architecture was amazing and inspiring. We made our first version of the IISE Monk Sack shortly after.

A still from our last video. Still haven't seen it? Check it out here: http://ii-se.co/pages/about-us

Strap detail is inspired by the collar on traditional Korean clothing called Hanbok. You’ll see this on our shoulder straps on our weekenders, briefcases, and daypacks. Oh some new colors too.

Final samples for new natural dye collection will be ready soon!

Cherry blossoms in Seoul!
