The Ink Bag

Water has been on this earth for billions of years, we have gone through thousands of winters, its about time there was a handbag inspired by this perpetual loop. The bag is made from leather and chromed steel. The metal components were created by first 3d printing each piece in order to create a mold and then casting the metal on top of each piece. The bag size is approximately 10”x 12”x 12”. The leather construction was by far the most important aspect of the design. The leather needed to be molded properly to create the tear drop shape on the front of the bag. This process took a lot of consideration and iterations to perfect.
