What would the result be if 5 craftsmen and 5 companies cooperate? Let's find out!

A year ago Handmade in Brugge was looking for makers and companies from the area of Bruges to work together in a co-creation project. What would the result be if craftsmen and (high-tec) companies cooperate? The results are fantastic!

5 matches took the challenge! They forced each other to push their boundaries and have achieved surprising results. The 5 prototypes of the different cooperation will be presented during a press conference on 24th march with an exhibition afterwards. The exhibition will tour over the year in several places across Belgium.

During the presentation I will present proudly the result of my cooperation with a high tech metal company ERPA and I’m pretty pleased with the result!
We will present 'taBI', a collection of bike bags especially designed for commuters where both materials, leather and metal (RVS) are combined.

Unfortunately I can't tell or show you more about it until the press conference. However I'll keep you posted in a next blogspot with pictures of taBI. Here a reflection of a successful evening.

and the 5 matches are:
