Katharina and I sat down one cozy fall evening to chat about her Uma bag and other great stuff while she was in Paris on a buying trip. Over yummy seafood and Pinot Grigio at Belle Maison in Paris, she told me why the Uma is perfect for her busy interior designing days in Basel and beyond, and what she needs to carry around from construction site to furniture showroom.

Favorite NVD bag : Uma - the luxe bowling bag

Katharina loves the bowling bag style of this NVD design, large enough for her retro folding wooden measuring stick, notebooks and pens, i-phone, vintage-style 'Doris' NVD make up pouch, wallet and keys, lipbalm, and her fetish/lucky yellow tiger ring in porcelain, from Nach Bijoux (often safely tucked away in the inside pocket while she works).

The bag has taken Katharina through restaurant, office and home renovations.  Her latest project: one of the oldest houses in Basel, dating from 1572, with a huge living room and decorated ceilings.

The bag's check lining is one of her favorite details:  "the linings are always really great in the NVD accessories, and gingham is one of my obsessions."   Grey, blue and black are favorite colors.

For the Uma bag, check out the e-shop for lots of different color combinations, handwoven fabrics, furs and leathers.
