Explore the use of cork fabric for lifestyle products. Manufacture a collection of cork and vegetable-tanned leather goods.
This was a personal project completed under The Harbinger Co. brand, a sustainable retail business I started. Cork is a rapidly renewable resources, and a very versatile material with interesting textures, especially as a textile.
A range of bags and wallets were designed using vegetable tanned leather and cork textiles sourced from Jenilek Cork Group. After I created the initial drawings and prototypes myself, a Los Angeles manufacture created another set based on the specs.
