I was inspired by the lucite purses of the 1940s-60s but I modernized it and made it a little more industrial




I used a heat gun to bend the plexi my dad helped with a little bit of the technical stuff like the opener. It is my design. everything is metal or plastic no fabric involved. It is really easy to carry and is light for what it is made of.
