DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Tango Tote Two

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Handbag

INSPIRATION:
Gretchen design is all about the precision of shapes. Our design is defined by a dynamic and modern, yet timeless style. Similarities with the Bauhaus school are recognisable. Details such as hand-applied profile structures, or architecturally shaped constructions indicate this influence.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
What is special about this bag is the shiny relief structure, which decorate the surface of front and back and forms the handles at the top part of the bag. These structured forms create a good stand. Profiling structures beneath the leather surface create a rich, three-dimensional texture. The shiny glazed leather deliberately plays with light and shadow effects, giving the bag an even more vivid character.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
What is special about this bag is the shiny relief structure, which decorate the surface of front and back and forms the handles at the top part of the bag. Profiling structures beneath the leather surface create a rich, three-dimensional texture. With the side parts folded in and attached to each other with a magnet, the Tango Tote has a triangle shape. The sides can also be left open, so the bag has a rectangle shape and is even roomier inside -also suitable for A4-Format.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
Berlins vibrant and young fashion scene belongs to one of the multifaceted metropolises in the world. The city reinvents itself every day. There is an energy, inspiration, openness and creativity that people only find here in this special place. It makes Berlin to a real trend forge. The power of creativity is so big and manifold that the single players can attract considerable international attention if they act together.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Cut to measure profile structures are applied onto a support material. This 'base structure' is then covered with leather. With a blunt knife, the so-called 'folding leg', each profile structure is retraced by hand, one by one. finest calf leather

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
You'll never find anything comparable to this truly innovative design! What a modern yet wearable piece of art.
