By qoowl and Dewi Bekker The result of a collaboration between two Industrial Designers and a Menswear Designer. Plaat Wooden Handbag is an elegant ‘technical’ bag recognizable by the pattern in which the wood is cut. The clean exterior is complemented by the leather interior with sleek lines. The flexibility of the timber, obtained by the technical production, in combination with leather makes this a special bag. Plaat Wooden Handbag is delivered as a flat piece. After threading the leather cord through the interior and tightening it the bag is shaped into its recognizable form. Both sides of the interior hold a side pocket for a phone or keys. The bag is 25cm wide so it can easily carry a larger purse. The bag can be worn in three different ways; as a clutch, handbag or a shoulder bag.
How Its Made
The leather interior of the Plaat Wooden Handbag is entirely made by hand by the designers themselves. The wooden exterior is laser-cut and finished by hand. For the launch the first batch is limited to 20 pieces.
