Introducing EHN’s special new project – the Market Bag, a collaboration with Matt Nash Uniform. Matt is a friend and he makes great bags, and recently branched out into making uniforms for some of Auckland’s best new cafes and restaurants. We decided what we really needed was the perfect market bag.

And here it is. It’s made from 15-oz canvas, with leather trim that will develop a beautiful patina over time. The handles are made from heavyweight webbed cotton, securely sewn for heavy loads. There’s a handy pouch for your wallet and phone in the front – if you’re anything like us, these always disappear to an unreachable back pocket, or down the very bottom under the lemons. Similarly, there’s a canvas loop for your keys. There’s also the all-important pouch for a wine bottle, so the bag transitions to picnic bag with ease. And – get this – it’s lined with nylon with to contain hummus spills and muddy potatoes.

Available in three colours – a lovely vivid mid blue, light grey and black – it is a most elegant thing and it will last you a very long time. Just quietly, we can see this making an excellent overnight or day bag after it’s done duty at the farmers’ market.

It’s $125 and if you order by December 15, we can guarantee delivery by Christmas.

    I don’t agree at all, Brendan. This is everything we stand for – beautifully and carefully made by a local designer, and it goes to support EHN’s reviews. I don’t see how that’s “jumping the shark” in any way.
