All adapted from paintings in the BLC Art Collection.

It all started in New York. Always mesmerized by those lanky courier dudes on bikes weaving in and out of Sixth Avenue traffic with a vinyl messenger bag strapped across their back, it’s no wonder the minute van de Wiel landed in Mexico, she started working on layouts for a messenger bag. Other styles soon followed. The design of each piece — messenger bag, tote or zippered portfolio — is adapted from a limited edition Black Line Crazy print.
Lining: Striped black-and-white material 100% Polyester; backing material 100% canvas
Two internal pockets: One zippered w/ round leather pull; the other pocket trimmed with leather
Light aluminum support & two press studs at the top designed to keep flap opening/closing effortless
Black leather corners added to the outside flap and bottom of the bag
80cm long cross body strap (160cm total)
Wrapped up inside a zippered black mesh “dust bag” with black leather trim + black round leather zipper pull. Great for storage and travel

Meet The Designer
One day, a NY-based brand maverick Mary van de Wiel landed in the middle of Mexico, picked up a brush and can of black house paint and, for the first time in her life, started to paint floor to ceiling. A life-long incurable doodler, those doodles refused to be doodles anymore.
Twenty months and two successful exhibitions later in Australia and Mexico, van de Wiel reinterpreted her black-and-white abstract paintings across gallery windows, murals, fabrics, home furnishings & more. "After all, art has a pulse. It belongs in everyday life. Not just on walls," she says. Then, she started scaling down images of her paintings for a line of accessories. Working with makers in Mexico City and Leon, she created a limited edition collection of vegan leather totes, messenger bags and zippered portfolios that spark the wearer's style statement. One-of-kind wool throws & rugs followed.
A good example of multicultural fusion, she's convinced she couldn't have created the entire BLC collection anywhere else except in Mexico. But right now, her first public art installation is in New York City. Unveiled in September 2019, titled WHAT WERE WE THINKING, it's still up at 6th Ave & W 51.
