AW by Andrea Wong
AW prides itself on incorporating reclaimed components, celebrating the beauty of found materials by giving them new life. Handwoven traditional textiles, locally sourced Canadian wool blankets and zippers from a former leather factory have all been repurposed in AW items. Quality materials from authentic sources compliment these unique elements: waxed canvas from an American family run mill, Swiss-made rock climbing ropes and soft European leathers. Each AW item is handmade by Andrea Wong in her Vancouver studio, using both modern and old-world sewing techniques. The AW line includes waxed canvas and leather tote bags, backpacks, wallets and other small leather goods.
