23 Nov FANTASTIC PLASTICS: SEE THE UNIQUE & TRENDY “JIDZ” PVC BAG COLLECTION
This year, plastics are so in! Translucent hues and clear, see-through items have been hitting the streets all through 2018 in the trendiest versions of plastics ever! Polyvinyl chloride, or PVC is an alternative to the popular leather-made bags. Also called Vinyl, the transparent shiny fabric has been adopted for everything fashion; from clothings to shoes to bags and will blow your mind in the broad array of designs and selections that it’s been adopted for in recent times. Clearly an all-time trend, PVC has recurred every few years in different styles, returning this year with a creative, no-holds-barred twist; we’ve discovered that PVC will work perfectly with just about any fashion item and will probably outlast all your favorite wardrobe picks from Spring to Winter. Even better, this durable fabric is easier to maintain than most other materials, leaving your item in the pristine sheen that makes it so irresistible.
As much as other items have shown great promise, bags are definitely the popular choice for the PVC trends. Celine, Prada, Maison Margiela, Chanel, Burberry and a host of others have clearly bought in on the new streetwear fad with their amazing collections. Street style however has a life of its own and has seen the trend grow from a seasonal luxury item to an all-time style essential. PVC bags are everywhere now, and designer or not, they never fail to catch your eye.

“Soft Glass”- Multicoloured Handmade Leather and PVC Tote Bag using traditional techniques that involve a minimalistic use of machinery.
Dimensions: 17″Length x 13″Height x 5″Width
“Soft Glass” is an artistic representation regarding the strength of a woman. She has her highs and her lows (“zig zag”); She is faced with many challenges (multicloured leather); yet she is expected to or able to stay strong, happy and beautiful while she carries on with life, forgetting that the more she pretends to herself, the more we see through her (PVC).
The signature Emblem “Twin Quadrangular Stars” also convey a significance: Lines start off at respective points, but do not seem to stop at an expected end. Look closely: two four-cornered stars are being formed- a smaller inner star and a larger outer star. As you sail through this journey of life defining your purpose, smoothness is not always a constant. Sometimes, you move in circles. You realize you sometimes might have to change routes, creating patterns that can be interpreted as either positive or negative. It all depends on how you look at it. At the end of the day, your faith, your belief, your guardian angel, your God etc (Larger Outer Star) has guided you (Smaller Inner Star) in all your journey.
Each bag is unique as pieces were put together from excesses from their production line. What a clever way to recycle!
