One winter, our inspiring sister showed us a piece of beaverboard, the corner of which was covered with colorful strings, patterned material and beads. She said she did not know what to do next with it and pushed it back behind the wardrobe.
You know this feeling, thought, internal order type: “I have to do it!” ….?
I chose a day when no one was at home (so as not to be afraid of), dumped on the table a huge top of fabrics, strings, second-hand skins, buttons, etc. and took the smallest (oh, these fears) piece of plywood I found in our workshop hut.
I did not know what I wanted to do, I just started to glue.
That’s how our first boho collage was made… it all started with it 🙂
16 months later – in June 2016 – a printout was made on the canvas, and soon afterwards the prototype of Elva – our very earliest model of a vegan handbag.
Unfortunately, the prototype did not impress anyone (except us), but everyone liked its improved version.
