Words by Tara Smith


At some point in your life, you would have come across a Glomesh purse.

The metal mesh coin purses are as ubiquitous in Australian culture as Kath & Kim. There’s no doubt that growing up, you or someone you knew had one.

We still get pangs of nostalgia every time we see one, which is why this latest release gets our tick of approval.

The brand has joined forces with another cult Australian label, Romance Was Born, to collaborate on a series of revamped coin purses.

The update includes Romance Was Born’s signature prints on Glomesh purses. The prints were originally designed by artist Del Kathryn Barton for Romance Was Born, and now have a new home in the wallet’s lining.

You can shop the new Pesh styles for $229 a piece.

Head here to get them before Christmas.
