Handymade in Brussels

"Handymade in Brussels" is a unique collection of handmade bags; a pattern designed on the tarp that hung from the scaffolding during the renovation of buildings in the Grand-Place. This project was produced in collaboration with L'Ouvroir (an adapted work enterprise), MAD Brussels Fashion and Design Platform, and the ASPH. The aim was to repurpose what would otherwise be considered as waste material. Each bag has been tagged with a metal plate numbered from 1 to 480, making it possible to pinpoint the exact location of the piece of tarp your bag is made from.
