Most things that I buy to serve one purpose, I end up using them for several more purposes, too. At heart, I’m a minimalist. I love the environment. So, I reduce, reuse and recycle everything that I can! ♻

I also try to apply those ideals in the product designs at Purple Relic.

A case at hand is the Purple Relic Leather Men’s DSLR Camera Briefcase Office Laptop Bag. It’s a mouthful. And I haven’t even begun describing the bag!


IN LOVE... ♥

I’m in love with this picture. Did the photoshoot in our very own tropical rainforest backyard in Singapore. The colors of the surroundings are extremely pleasing to the eye. Plus, the chocolate brown looks so delectable I literally feel like popping it into my mouth as if it were a Ferrero Rocher truffle☻



The first variant of this handsome handcrafted leather bag was in tobacco brown shade. It was an instant celebrity and was sold out in weeks. When we sent an order to restock it, the leather provider misread the color code and produced the hide in chocolate brown. But, nothing lost. We felt like we struck a pot of “chocolate”. Eureka!

It's the return of retro modernism. While fulfilling the needs of the modern lifestyle, it delivers the charms of the years gone by.
