klinik first aid kit
Bags: be they small or large, knapsacks, schoolbags or smaller leather goods (e.g. wallets), they are often regarded with a special affectional love: everyone feels this relationship that has developed over the years. It is often difficult to decide to part with such an object for good, as it is both a carrier and container of one’s intimacy, memories, and daily thoughts… Then why should we? Why not give it a longer life, embellish it with a new design, a new appearance that saves it while renewing it?
AWA’s creations of unusual jewellery and of transformation accessories are based on the principles of recovery, diversion, repair and communication.
AWA is bringing of a new way in design which, by combining familiar elements and current techniques, improves and transforms an object into another.
