Urban Wicker

Natural materials and authentic craftsmanship appear to be at odds with modern materials, techniques and functionality. But this need not be the case. With ‘Urban Wicker’, Marjolijn Senders brings these seemingly opposing worlds together. Her two bags, a white shopper and black backpack, are handmade using natural wicker for strength and industrial polyester for flexibility. Combined, the contrasting materials complement each other as she weaves them into an integrated aesthetic. The bags can be enlarged when needed and are made up of modular sections to change the colour or pattern easily.
