CHIA WEI WANG
Based on the studies of Cube, I continued the assignment to design bags. I stated out to do further study of the form and meanwhile searching for materials that I would like to work with. I visited a leather workshop owned by Ad in Rijen, NL. Below are some photos of his workshop and he was working on making briefcases from an order. He showed the way he made folds with tool on leather. Once the technique is applied the fold is then existed, so I made a decision to use the fold as not only fold for my bag bottom but also extended as decoration on the surfaces.
