Built by Scriven

Scriven

The bags and their adorning jewels were all designed and hand built by 30Amp's Executive Director Keith Scriven nationally renowned as a master jeweler, designer and fine art collector.

Locally, Scriven has been supporting art and artists in Philly since the 1993 Debut of Dizyners Gallery which went on to start a new age in Philly art and culture. In 2004, Keith purchased a farm in North Jersey where he began training horses which inspired him to begin working with leathers. Today, Scriven creates fine jewelry in his Jewelers row studio and showcases his custom bag in his Main Line Boutique.

AN INTERVIEW WITH THE BAG'S DESIGNERS ON THE MAKING OF THE BAG


by Ursula Rucker


wish ALL OF IT
could be turned into
a bag of dreams

all of it.
ALL OF the fears
ALL OF the self-doubts
ALL OF the…
everythings that meant
and were made to
crush good, sweet, fruitful…dreams

I’d like to turn ALL OF IT
into a BAG OF DREAMS
a bag that can transform n transmute…
the fears
the self-doubts
and the oh-so-many
ill-intentioned everythings
into hopes,
wishes,
and well…
the best,
sweetest,
and most fruitful of…
DREAMS

and this bag won’t hold these dreams captive
it will instead…
carry
care for
and cocoon them
until ripe…
until ready…

to fly…
to shine…
TO BE

good, sweet, fruitful… DREAMING 💭
