From South London textile designer Kangan Arora, this handy pouch is just the right size for all sorts of things – personal essentials, on-the-go sketching materials, or your make up or wash kit. The gently undulating pattern in contrasting colourways on both sides of the pouch is inspired by the sinuous river Thames connecting our two London galleries – Tate Britain and Tate Modern.
Measuring 20 x 25.5 cm, the pouch is made from 100% certified organic cotton duck fabric, printed using authentic table hand screens and pigment dyes. The factory we’ve partnered with to manufacture the textiles used for our Kangan Arora x Tate collection is based in Faridabad, Northern India and is GOTS, OCS + OEKOTEX certified. All processes (stitching, printing, washing, finishing) happen in-house and they use rain water harvesting, water recycling and LED lights to save on power and energy. They also have solar panels installed enabling them to generate a third of their power consumption from renewable sources.
The packaging material for the pouch is made from butter paper to reduce plastic waste ¬– this ensures the textiles are protected and that the packaging is also compostable.
