Why should a bag be loaded with all different kind of decoration and

built up by difficult pattern parts? Pliability Series is a collection where

the base is a simple geometric shape, which is transformed and shaped

by the way it is constructed.

By playing with the primary parts of a bag: the handles, gravity and the

pliability of the textile the shape of the bag arises.

The plastic eyelets are very characteristic for the collection; they are

leading the rope handles through the bag, which cause the pleating

and folding.

Below you can see a serie of shape studies, “3d sketches”, to explore

and find shape, they where the starting point and leading thread to

design the collection
