Handymade in Brussels

city bag; plastic (PVC). 30 x 50 x 10 cm


"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.
