The collaboration between the cool, Swedish, non alcohol wine company aptly named, Oddbird and the unique Handbag Designer Meng Du using our future grape leather made it into Scandinavian Vogue.
Partnering with Swedish wine producer OddBird, young designer Meng Du releases handbags made from grape leather. With a tipple for sustainably made handbags, Vogue Scandinavia spoke to the designer. “I found that when recycling these used plastic milk cartons, or beverage cans, they are almost always squashed and have a dent in them,” Meng Du says.
To me, when altering a perfect shape into irregularity, it becomes interesting and unique.
The irregularity was what stayed with the designer, who deliberately designed the bags to look as if they had a dent.” To me, when altering a perfect shape into irregularity, it becomes interesting and unique. Just because something isn’t new or perfect, it doesn’t lose its value as some of our society seem to think. On the contrary, its value is rather increased with a previous existence.”
The Sustainable future materials aren’t that so far away….
