Its not a common way to do laundry these days, but the aesthetic and culture of the laundrette (laundromat) is one that not just I find pleasing. Maybe its the repetitive circular motion of clothes tumbling around, the retro machinery of a bygone era or the interesting people you can meet at an urban laundrette - especially late at night! If anyone has seen the latest block buster film - you may have seen some very delicious laundrette scenes that have so clearly inspired my latest range of bags.
This film left me feeling a little baffled and ruffled like, i had, myself been through a cycle in one of the washing machines shown below. However there were many scenes such as these ones below. It was so surprising to find out that the scenes in the film were shot in a real laundromat in San Francisco.
The Wang family’s laundromat featured in blockbuster film "Everything everywhere all at once" was shot at a real laundromat in San Fernando, California. The film is partly about a Chinese immigrant mother's world view and her relationship with her American born daughter, it is also about the metaverse, untapped potential, tax and kung fu. Did you enjoy this film?
The whole range of the Goodordering Laundrette range aka the tartan range available on our online shop and selected retailers now.
This photoshoot was done in Hackney central at a local laundrette to me. I took in a load of washing to do and the owners kindly allowed me to take some photos. The bags include the rolltop backpack, the beloved new and original Billow and the tartan bum bag, these are some of my favourite bags in this range.
The tartan range was inspired by the iconic laundry bag fabric. Known to everyone all around the world in slightly different guises, a travel bag, a laundry, a moving bag. Widely available and extremely affordable, the laundry bag is bought from any 2 dollar shop / pound store or corner hardware home store around the world. The familiarity of the woven fabric invokes a nostalgic feeling. We have re-invented this fabric for higher durability, converting the woven fabric into a print on a recycled nylon fabric. The result is sustainable and useful for everyday use, but will last a lot longer that the iconic bag that it is inspired by.
