As a multi-disciplinary designer, I am constantly rediscovering what design means by working and learning in different mediums. But the one medium that I have always remained passionate about is Craft. Understandably, the budding of new technology makes for speedy functional products, but the medium of Craft can evoke a feeling, portray an idea, and build a solid connection between the maker and audience.
With this series of hand-made bags, I would like to introduce: FINA — Function Inspires New Aesthetics. My passion for Craft and my personal achievements in aquatic sports allowed me to pursue my interest in sourcing 'unconventional' and functional fabrics and turning that material into a conventional product suitable for water mammals (and land mammals alike!)
These type’s of fabrics must work for the swimmer and not the other way around. They are durable, lightweight, and water resistant. The idea is to have a product that can withstand the stench of chlorine and prevent any wear and tear from wet or damp swimming equipment.
These bags are one-of-a-kind and they are currently made-to-order. If there are any inquiries, please connect with me and let's chat, I would love to hear from you!
