Made in Germany: Lemonfish
By C N Heidelberg 17:33 fashion
got a Lemonfish bag!
About a year and a half ago we were goofing around in the KaDeWe in Berlin when I first saw Lemonfish bags and immediately loved them - they are cute, but the construction from old sailor's bags keeps them from being overly so. They're made in Germany by women in a women's prison work rehab program. They're kind of expensive so I didn't get one right away, but after I got home I looked them up online and found this particular model which I really liked - and I finally got it now.* :) Going out is now a combination of feeling like a million bucks because I'm wearing something I really love (I know, should be all the time, but that would be very expensive indeed), and being really nervous that the bag will meet a wayward ice-cream-cone-swinging kid on a crowded street and never be the same again.
You unfortunately can't buy them on the Lemonfish website, but there are a few stores in Heidelberg that have them, including Bolero and Eckhaus. Neither had this model, though, so I got it online at this shop. They don't seem to have this exact one anymore but there are some different ones in the same general design (Annerl).
* Seriously though, do not use my stupid delayed-shopping habits as a model for your life. I didn't jump on the electric blue Doc Martens 2 years ago when I wanted them, and they stopped making them shortly thereafter.
