Koala backpack belt


New product

A band runs along the back, shoulders and waist creating gripping elements (handles), container elements (main body) and mixed elements (waist pockets) that hold the backpack as they share the weight and also serve as pockets.

These pockets can be either tied at the waist (allowing access to frequently used objects) or tied behind the back. To carry it as a shoulder bag it has a short handle that has to be unfastened from the backpacks handles.

HistoryOne of the recurring themes of design, architecture and art throughout modern history has been, the Möbius band. In my case it allows me to make a “round” handbag, a bag that integrates all these elements in a single unit. Thus I returned to an old but timeless idea that served me for my final graduate fashion design project, and which is increasingly better adapted over time to the new needs.
The collectionBandas: the search for a unity in bag design, (body, handle and other elements become the same thing with a single gesture), has lead to developing a bag as a strip that hangs and wraps around the body at the same time as it serves as an object container. One of the most recurrent ideas in the design of these strips is the representation of geometric infinity: the Möbius band.
