The Great Frog made its name catering to a niche clientele of rockers, bikers and those on the edge of the mainstream. Started in 1972, the company was a refreshing change from the 60′s revolution prevailing in London. The city was ready for a new era and original rock and roll jewellery was born. The Great Frog has designed bespoke pieces for many international names from the fashion and music industries, including rock legends Metallica, Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Slash and Aerosmith. Other wearers of the brand and a part of its heritage, include Johnny Depp, Kate Moss, Alice Dellal, Lady Gaga and Oasis. Every ring is still handmade in London.

I am proud to show you our new ’Butts and Shoulders’ brand. This brand is a collaboration of friends which are sharing the same authentic passion. Our idea was to create the ultimate travel bag. After one year of testing several pilot bags which have travelled through the world we finally made our First Edition of 50 bags. They are now for sale in our webshop section.
Our Butts and Shoulders bag is made of 100% natural vegetable leather. We call it virgin leather. The moment you unpack it, you are starting the unique ageing process. By using it, touching it and even by exposing it to daylight the looks of this unique bag will change. The more you will use it, the more beautifull it gets. Like a true friendship that will grow over time. Butts and Shoulders will be your buddy for the rest of your life.
Every bag will be delivered with a leather certificate with the unique bag number. The certificate reminds you to the start of the ‘virgin’ leather and it’s also the testimony of the registered original. The bag is 100% made in Holland. Below some pictures, but the best is to check our new website for the whole story and (detail) pics.
Lately I got my hands on this vintage deadstock Levi’s Big E orange tab denim totebag. The orange tab shows that this item is from the late sixties. It’s still brand new after all these years. Made from right hand denim and premium quality. On the front of the bag they added a backpocket which is single stiched, something typical for original Big E’s. This treasure is a great addition in my private collection.
The new Atelier de L’Armee winter collection 2013 is out now. As always the collection is really nice, loaded with old army, denim and leather handmade bags. Below some impressions from their new lookbook and some of their latest creations. Bravo Joost & Elza!
