Yellow! The first solid colour bag we have ever made, and it’s by request. Ralph Escamillan is a collaborator and dear friend of the Fiveleft team, and he always has awesome crazy ideas! (that’s why we love him) 

Last year he was elemental in developing the fashion film we put together. He wrangled the dancers, orchestrated the movement and even danced in the film. He also featured in our fashion show for the launch of elleven. So if anyone deserves an awesome custom bag that has only one solid colour, it is him. Thanks Ralph for being so awesome and getting involved with our projects. This yellow beauty will be done soon!
