ZIP POUCHES, BY OELWEIN
We have a lot of things here in the Hopscotch studio, which means we’re always looking for ways to keep our items tidy and organised. And as we like things to look beautiful at all times, we have to find storage solutions that fit our style.
Cue these gorgeous zip pouches from the lovely Oelwein. These gorgeous handprinted little bags are designed, printed and made in France, so we can all have a little bit of Parisien style in our lives. These pouches are made in a family run workshop just outside of Paris, where each one is expertly crafted to the perfect finish.
Severine, the designer behind these pouches, makes gorgeous prints and patterns that she applies on products from pouches to notebooks and totes. All these products are very environmentally friendly, with the bags and pouches printed using eco friendly inks, and the notebooks being printed on recycled paper — so you don’t have to feel guilty having these in your home.
These pouches come in two designs — a dot pattern and a galaxy pattern. Whichever you choose, each pouch is finished with a sturdy YKK zip and a leather zip pull to add the perfect final flourish. Plus, both designs fit into our obsession with monochrome which you can read about here.
Being the perfect size for makeup and small items, we love to fill ours with our favourite skincare and beauty items of the moment — including this incredible, super moisturising lip butter from Herbivore Botanicals. It comes in Blood Orange (1) and Rose (2) flavours, and a little goes a long way with this wonder product. Another 100% natural product we are loving is this Purify Serum (3), made from a concentrated blend of highly active plant oils, including Azulene rich Blue Yarrow that hydrates and brings balance to combination, oily and blemish prone skin.
You can use these pouches to store your makeup, keep your important documents together while you travel, or just to make sure your small keepsakes stay safe — no matter what you decide to do with them you’ll always look classic and stylish. All products mentioned here are available to buy online now.
