Wood is the base of Ancestor design. We seeking wood that would be both lightweight and exceptionally durable. Oak was too heavy, burch to easy to scratch so we turned to the experience of our ancestors, who built ships out of ash trees. The secret is that even a thin layer of ash wood makes items durable enough for everyday use. Moreover, ash wood has a beautiful natural texture making each bag unique.

 

We used the leather to go well with the wood and have the right texture. The high quality of the leather guarantees that the bags will look even better with time.

The inside of each bag is lined with suede which protects laptops from being scratched.

Each Ancestor Bag has its own voice, a unique sound that turns into real music and magical ritual that fascinates and transports you into the deep past, when our ancestors danced their shamanic dances near a forest fire. And you know what? Perhaps the trees from which the Anchor Bags are made, saw these dances themselves.

True masters work on Ancestor bags in our workshop. They’ve learnt from the best and have knowledge accrued over generations. Handcraft is time consuming and demanding, but the result is worth it: the quality of our bags is exceptional.

We believe in using only high quality materials and we also believe that unique things make our lives better.

The name of the studio, AncestorWorld, is our way of showing respect to our heritage, it brings us back to the times when plastic did not exist and our ancestors build their houses and made their clothes using only natural materials.

 

Our bags look even better in real life than in the pictures. We really want you to see them!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

No risks! We have already made working prototypes of Ancestor briefcases and clutches that travel the world together with the AncestorWorld Team and are well tested for strength and wow effect. Every backer can be 100% sure that he will receive his Ancestor, and together you will be gorgeous.

The upside of a product made of natural materials, is that every object is unique. But making handmade production is time consuming. If this project will become successful, we will do our best to get you your unique handbag within a month. Please allow us some time to produce and deliver. We guarantee that your patience will be rewarded.

If we reach the $50.000 stretch goal, we will create another fresh Ancestor Red design!
