2013 Finalist Dikla Levi Harel Assemblage Unique


How are your bags made? (e.g. hand-sewn, knit, crocheted, sewing machine, etc.)
sewing machine

What is the primary material used?
Natural canvas and wood

Do you make all of your own bags?

If not, please explain who helps you make your bags.

What is your design inspiration?
My inspiration is everywhere and everything. I get inspired by people I see when wondering the streets, by buildings and architecture, by art, movies, music and even from surfing the web. Everything can plant an idea in my head and inspire me to create something new. And as soon as this idea is planted in my head I can see the entire piece in my imagination, the colors the materials, and even the size, then I start to create it in the physical world, draw the final draft on paper as I see it in my head with all the data of color, materials etc. I see my designs as modern, minimalist and simple with a personal and unique touch by me, that have to be in every bag either it is the hand printing in the colorful clutch bags or the leather braid that I handmade.

Do you use a Brother Sewing Machine? If yes, which one and if not, which brand?
