'The Race' cotton musette bag brings Giuliana Lazzerini's beautiful linocut to the best of British manufacturing.
Commissioned to mark the 2014 Tour de France's Yorkshire Grand Depart; 'The Race' was very much a celebration of the success of British Cycling which continues to evoke the thrill of today's races and the legacy of that Grand Depart; the annual Tour of Yorkshire.
Taking inspiration from vintage cycling images; we love this image with its rolling hills, dry-stone walls and good old fashioned Yorkshire sunshine. It captures not just the thrill of the race but the simple pleasure of those sunny day rides.
We have been thrilled to continue the UK base of 'The Race' to bring York based Giuliana's image to musette bags made in Accrington (at a textile mill working its magic since 1918) and lovingly screen-printed in Leeds.
With a secure popper flap fastening the bag slips comfortably across the body or over the shoulder to offer a great musette to hold all your cycling essentials which bases its design on vintage cycling musettes of old. It also makes an excellent everyday for satchel for work or play; holding all those daily or shopping essentials.
Available in the same gorgous colourways as the original linocuts, Teal and Orange and Grey.
Bag Size: Approximately 35 cm deep (with the flap closed) by 34 cm wide
