Purchased this a few months ago and have carried it every.day.!!
Holds a fair amount of stuff- 2 mobile phones, keys, glasses case, and other odds.
It is cute as a cross body, shoulder or hand carry. The artichoke colour is a tiny bit more dull than the image, but it has a gorgeous grey undertone that looks great against all outfits
I received this as a gift. First thought was that is appears to be inspired by the loewe hammock made in a cheap fake leather promoted as vegan (even though the process and chemicals used in creating fake leather can often be very harmful to the environment).
Decided to donate it as I knew I'd never use it. I can't bring myself to use or buy obvious clones of other brands designs. Will purchase the Loewe instead, the quality is worth it.
Thanks for your feedback. You're clearly not a fan of the brand - but great that your friend is!
We have not sought to emulate or copy the Hammock Bag. If we had a copyist heart, rest assured we'd have copied it verbatim - it's a popular strategy of many brands. Instead, we have tapped a trending silhouette of a pouche bag, and added our signature handles + given the base a distinct appearance. It's not in our brand nature to copy, there is no joy in it.
Re the synthetic leather - there is so much fact based information available regarding this, if you're truly interested we'd encourage some further reading. You don't need to like our brand to be open minded + learn about materials. Collective Fashion Justice + Material Innovation Initiative are both excellent sources of facts. Indeed, animal leather has a far higher environmental footprint than synthetic versions. From chemical use, to water use, deforestation, loss of biodiversity, eutrophication + of course, the ethical ramifications of a slaughter industry; it's all part of the 50 billion+ USD leather handbag market. Polyurethane coatings are also used on many leather handbags - yes, even in luxury.
All the best,

I've been eyeing the Dumpling Pouche for an age, and was torn between what colour to choose. Upon visiting the studio to look at the Citron and Black versions, I was pointed in the direction of Artichoke. The colour is neutral yet unique, and the black detailing gives it added depth and oomph. The bag itself is next level, I knew it would fit a decent amount but I am amazed by what I can happily fit in my bag - which somehow makes the dumpling shape even more fabulous.
I paired mine with the gunmetal chain strap which gives it a dark, moody feel. 🖤🖤🖤
Such a cute and unique purse design! Quality materials and the bag can fit a lot inside. International shipping also took a lot less time than originally estimated so that was a nice surprise. I still haven’t worn it yet as I’m waiting for the perfect occasion.
Beautiful as always. Love the style and fits so much without being to bulky. Love!
The bag is made beautifully.
The most important "wow" factor about this bag for me is that it fits my tax calculator. Hear me out - on a Friday in the office when I don't want to be lugging around a larger handbag if I've got plans after work, this is the perfect compromise as it stills allows me to carry around one of my most valuable tools while still being unique, stylish and outfit appropriate (and not giving away the fact I have a calculator in my handbag at all...). Considering it is a drawstring closure, I actually find it quite secure and who can look past the adorable dumpling shape? To be honest, wasn't 100% sold on it when first received but now it's a hands down winner for me.
