From her studio in Claremont, California, designer Judy Augur has been creating one-of-a-kind bags from vintage and reclaimed textiles for over fourteen years. With a unique ability to imagine innovative applications for textiles some would consider “past their prime,” Judy is committed to extending their existence by transforming them into bags that are beautiful, useful and durable. Using preexisting examples of material culture as her springboard, Judy is drawn to objects that reflect the natural world through color, texture, balance, and form: “Working with textiles and fabrics that were made by others before me serves to demonstrate and highlight the timeless influence of the environment on artisans and craftspeople.”
The J. Augur Design team creates each bag from its inception to completion with meticulous attention to detail. As no two bags are alike, each one carries with it distinctive qualities of provenance, patina, and character—telling its own story. The J. Augur Design bag is an extraordinary product, expertly hand crafted and absolutely unique…unconditionally guaranteed…for life.
