THE LIMITED-EDITION MAVERICK ENCOUNTERS BAG
In celebration of Charles Heidsieck’s partnership with Otis Ingrams, he and Charles have together designed a limited edition, Maverick Encounter leather and cork champagne bag.
Exclusively available at Selfridges for £180, purchase of the leather Maverick Encounter also includes a bottle of Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve.
Otis Ingrams set up Otzi Studio in 2014 stemming from a desire to produce skilfully-crafted goods. Using natural, responsibly-sourced materials including leather, cork and wood, Otis is committed to sourcing the finest materials where possible and producing carefully crafted, quality pieces.
Otis has always held a strong belief in creating objects with integrity, which comes through in the materials used at the Otzi studio. The focus and use of vegetable tanned and bridle leathers, all tanned slowly and sustainably for up to two months, ensures the creation of simple designs, resulting in honest and beautiful products. Otis’ ethos is based on a belief that natural and sustainable materials have intrinsic value and idiosyncratic characteristics that synthetic materials cannot produce.
The immersive Maverick Encounter workshop with Otis commenced with a champagne tasting and pairing masterclass where guests had the opportunity to taste Charles Heidsieck’s Brut Réserve and Rosé Réserve champagnes.
With Otis’ help, guests then learned a combination of both traditional and contemporary techniques to create their own customised, leather bag, perfect for transporting a bottle of Charles Heidsieck champagne. Following the workshop, guests were able to take home their hand-crafted, unique, monogrammed, leather bag.
