Makemoret collective is an online open-source education exchange platform. The platform aims to bridge traditional and industrial practices with new natural material innovation in the biomaterial realm. The platform offers a biomaterial archive contributed by Gal Yakobovitch and partners of the platform (worldwide makers of bio-design practices). The intention of the archive is to build a foundation for knowledge sharing in bio-design so that makers could use natural materials and ecologically friendly design in their practice.
The Bio-Bag is the latest creation of the NYC based Fashion Biomaker Gal Yakobovitch. It was born through the sustainable initiative collaboration with LUXARITY to bring forth innovation in sustainable design and materials. The production of the bag considered a circular model of design -from using locally-sourced natural materials, producing locally in NYC and finally the end life and biodegradability of the product.
The Bio-Bag is the new innovation in Luxury bags. Hand made in NYC through a modern seamless technique using locally-sourced all natural materials that can easily biodegrade domestically.
The Bio-Bag adjust to three features to accommodate the wearer’s needs:
Long strap – over the shoulder easy to wear tote bag.
Short strap – by adjusting the strap, the Bio-Bag turns into a hand bag.
Clutch – by closing the magnetic snaps the bag could be worn as a triangular classic clutch.
The Bio-Bag is composed of four ingredients: Gelatin, Glycerin, Water and Activated Charcoal. When the wearer decides to dispose of the bag, he or she will do so by immersing the bag in boiling water. The bag will melt and can be poured down the drain, while all other hardware attached to it can be recycled.
The bag is showcased in the LUXARITY 2018 pop-up.
