ARTIST ROGER SELDEN

For the Selden capsule collaboration, we teamed up with the critically acclaimed painter, sculptor and author; Roger Selden. We commissioned SELDEN to create the artwork exclusively for Crafted Society and it has been expertly hand printed onto multiple sustainable fabrics to create a stunning, limited edition collection of timeless products.

“The artisan is the artist’s third hand. With the collaboration of the master printer, ceramist, glassmaker, metalworker, woodworker etc. the artist is able to live his creative dream. This is why I am more than happy to support the important project of Crafted Society.”
Roger Selden

The capsule consists of 5 unique coloured cashmere/silk scarves, a new leather & printed canvas lightweight sneaker, a printed organic cotton canvas & vachetta leather tote bag, a printed organic cotton canvas & vachetta leather cross-body/clutch bag and a printed organic cotton canvas & vachetta travel weekender bag.
