Paper bags by Ilvy Jacobs

The freshly graduated Dutch product designer Ilvy Jacobs specialized on designing bags, more specifically paper bags. Inspired by packaging, Jacobs started to investigate ways to create a longer duration through a form and/or material addition. The tactile aspects of the material and sustainability are very important in her work.

SPORTS CRUNCHBAGS

This serie of bags is made of cardboard laminated with a fabric. With this material the bags are more sustainable and the become more functional. 

There is a tennis bag, a golf bag a bowling bag and at last a sports bag. These used to be mostly functional for using with sports, but nowadays the bags are more fashionable instead for just using for sports.

With these bags it is mostly about the skin and the shapes that make the bags so functional.

February launches the new Paper group, an ecological range of leather free bags made from recyclable plant fibres. These unique cellulose pieces feature cotton webbed straps with steel zips and closures.

The Paper fabric is both durable and pratical as the Lune Tote and Haru rucksack are machine washable. Hana, Lin and Nami are a modern take on the Classic frames with a simple steel frame and a bar closure.

Hypalon

Hypalon is a trademark for chlorosulfonated polyethylene (CSPE) synthetic rubber (CSM) noted for its resistance to chemicals, temperature extremes, and ultraviolet light. It was a product of DuPont Performance Elastomers, a subsidiary of DuPont.

Along with PVC, CSM is one of the most common materials used to make inflatable boats and folding kayaks. It is also used in roofing materials and as a surface coat material on radomes owing to its radar-transparent quality.

Hypalon is also used in the construction of the decking of modern snowshoes, replacing neoprene as a lighter, stronger alternative.

Neoprene

Neoprene or polychloroprene is a family of synthetic rubbers that are produced by polymerization of chloroprene. Neoprene exhibits good chemical stability, and maintains flexibility over a wide temperature range. It is used in a wide variety of applications, such as laptop sleeves, orthopedic braces (wrist, knee, etc.), electrical insulation, liquid and sheet applied elastomeric membranes or flashings, and automotive fan belts.

Neoprene resists degradation more than natural or synthetic rubber.It is commonly used as a material for fly fishing waders, as it provides excellent insulation against cold. Neoprene waders are usually about 5 mm thick, and in the medium price range as compared to cheaper materials such as nylon and rubber. However, neoprene is less expensive than breathable fabrics.

Recently, neoprene has become a favorite material for lifestyle and other home accessories including laptop sleeves, tablet holders, remote controls and cycling chamois. In this market, it sometimes competes with LRPu (low-resilience polyurethane), which is a sturdier (more impact-resistant) but less-used material.

Waxed Cotton

  • Waxed cotton is cotton impregnated with a paraffin based wax, woven into a cloth
  • Widely used from the mid-19th century to the mid-1950s
  • the product was originated in the sailing industry in England and Scotland
  • One of the early adopters was J. Barbour & Sons in the outdoor industry, producing waxed jackets for farmers and gamekeepers
  • as motorcycling was then the predominant form of personal transport, the new company of Belstaff also developed clothing
  • for the British army, waxed cotton was their first choice for clothing
  • as wax and cotton are both natural products, they decay and reduce in effectiveness over time
  • waxed-cotton products should never be stored in a damp condition
  • Waxed cotton also needs regular annual re-waxing
