A custom made work, something unique and made just for you make you feel special, but I think it's also an easy and creative way to indulge in memories showing a little bit of you.
Some years ago, the first time I saw one of the bags from the italian brand Momaboma I spent a while looking at it in fascination, literally "reading" it. Their bags, wallets and accessories are built around an "esthethic of recycling", using original old newspapers and period magazines (and even original classworks!), wrapped in a crossed polypropylene net to obtain a patented material.
As you can read on their page:
Creation is not a stroke of genius but the capacity to insert into an infinite history of passion, application, emotions: the history of the contemporaneous man.
Right this month Momaboma launched an interesting project called MyMomaboma. Through their website you can now submit your request for a custom made accesory using your own materials and memories. Magazines, books, photos, letters and even fabrics, clothes, old bags and plastic stuff will be reworked and rethought around a new project. Your own project indeed.
Now you can take a walk down Memory Lane carrying your feelings in a new bag...
