Ilvy Jacobs graduated in June 2010 on the Artez in Arnhem, Product Design. Designing bags is her specialization and for her graduation collection She’s refering to the bag as a packing function. From thinking about packing and packaging, Ilvy started to investigate ways to create a longer duration through a form and/or material addition. Hereby the bags get more value for the user. The tactile aspects of the material and sustainability are very important in her work. Ilvy Jacobs is constantly developing herself and designing new products. She works a lot with paper, but also with leather and textiles.
