No slithery creatures were harmed in the making of Freitag’s snakeskin bag, just vintage truck tarpaulins, hand-knotted to scaly effect. Part of the Swiss manufacturer’s new Reference collection, the Hind shopper is named for Ella Cora Hind, western Canada’s first female journalist—a tangential nod, according to Freitag, to the serpent that made an apple-chomper out of Eve.
