One Language Label is a line of canvas bags designed to make your everyday needs functional and fresh in design. Re-thinking canvas!
WHO WE ARE -
One Language Label is a line of canvas bags based on the principles of simple, clean designs and function. Designed by 2 sisters (us!), we set out to get canvas some new respect, one bag at a time. Underwhelmed by the amount of boring, poorly designed, flimsy canvas bags out there, we wanted to rethink canvas and create a line that was visually pleasing as well as making sure that it was functional for its everyday purpose. Canvas is an incredibly sustainable and durable material and we wanted to show people that if well designed, a canvas bag could be one of your favorite everyday bags to carry. **For more about our background, check out our bio link to the right
ABOUT OUR BAGS -
All of our canvas bags are 100% natural, unbleached cotton canvas from and made in India. In order to make our bags worth something to talk about, we really focused on making sure they were well designed both inside and out, as well designing with durability and functionality in mind. It doesn't matter how 'good' a bag looks if it can't do its basic job as a carryall. So we started from the inside, out. All the bags are lined with handwritten inspirational quotes; quotes that we had kept in our journal throughout the design process that we would turn to when things got hard or we just needed a reminder that dreams are worth fighting for. If it's not hard, you're not dreaming big enough! The lining is our signature and we love it. We also wanted to make sure that the bags could hold whatever it was needed for - groceries, books, travel essentials, beach accessories, etc. So we gave it tons of pockets and even a matching laptop sleeve for our classic tote bags.
WHAT YOUR PLEDGE AND SUPPORT WILL GO TO -
First, thank you for taking the time to get to know us and about our line. We hope you've found our story interesting, the bags covet-worthy but more importantly, worth supporting. We have so many new styles and shapes already designed (including duffel bags and backpacks), and new details we want to incorporate like adding shoulder straps to our classic totes as well as leather detailing but cannot move forward without your help. Currently we are unable to move into the next stages of production as we have factory minimums and sourcing costs to meet. That's where we need your help! Every pledge will show us the demand for these bags are there, help us get closer to meeting production minimums, and ultimately move us into the next stage of One Language so that we can keep creating a line of bags that we hope you want to see more of. We hope you'll pledge and help share our story with friends and family!
Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
We've been lucky to be working with the same factory since Day 1; over 4 years ago. That doesn't mean however, that there won't be some challenges along the way, especially since we're trying to source new materials and hardware for the new collection. Regardless, we will let you know of our progress every step of the way, including any challenges we may face during our production.
Below are some areas that could be affected by the unexpected -
Ship Date : We’ve planned for a reasonable production and fulfillment timeline, but if we receive orders that overly exceed what we've planned for (not a bad problem to have!), there may be some small delays in the process. But no worries, we will always provide nothing but transparency by over-communicating with you, our backers.
Design : Based on how much we exceed our goal by, some minor tweaks may be required on some of the new materials to be added in the details like leather straps/handles, new hardware, zippers etc., but you can be assured that the quality will remain nothing but the highest standards.
