Verdeq presents the new bag SOFTOTE, designed by product and industrial designer Konstantin Grcic. His design is based on the upcycling of surplus material from the automotive industry.
Material samples that are rear-window cut-outs from the production lines of convertible car soft-top roofs, in their raw and organic nature and round-edged forms are deftly assembled into a refined tote bag design. The cut-outs are used “as is” further alluding to original source material.
Convertible soft-top fabric is lightweight, extremely durable, and water-repellent, perfect for upcycling. All bags are hand-made. Softote is available online at verdeq.com and in Berlin-based gallery Lieb & Teuer at the price of 160 Euros.
Versions: Black, Grey, Black Red, Black
