Frida is our beautiful MAHY case.
Perfect as an artists’ case for brushes and sketch pencils, or as a pencil case. She is so smooth and practical, ethically homemade in New Zealand from high-quality soft cowskin with a smooth brass zip closure. She is a nifty addition to our collection.
This beautiful case is inspired by Frida Kahlo, a strong feminist and Mexican painter known for her many portraits and self-portraits. She overcame huge adversity after being severely injured in a bus crash when she was just 18 – in fact, it was her many months of bed rest that first led her to pick up a paintbrush. Do you need Frida in your life? “The only thing I know is that I paint because I need to, and I paint whatever passes through my head without any other consideration.”
