Because the MANU Atelier Pristine bag is...

...made out of vegetable-tanned calf leather, a textured lining and gold-tone hardware.

...designed to be worn while walking into the Imperial War Museum on Lambeth Road, London SE1 6HZ and listening to Love is a Battlefield by Pat Benatar from 1983.

...carrying a tube of red lipstick, a cigarette holder, a pack of plasters and an original copy of Doris Lessing’s The Grass is Singing from 1950.

...a great replacement for a box of childhood memories or a fashionable take on a First Aid kit. homage to Nancy Wake of the French Resistance.
