The first project by k2m design inc., this range of accessories is upcycled from scraps of polymer-coated fiberglass fabric and high-intensity PVC polyester. Called Katamaku, the collection includes cases, covers, folders, and pouches, all crafted from durable, waterproof materials that are commonly used to make everything from tents to the Tokyo Dome. When folded “like a kimono,” the strong material takes on a rather delicate look, and k2m design inc’s creations are more elegant for it. Longer-lasting and more fashion-forward than the average eco-friendly wallet, Katamaku accessories are a truly stylish and sustainable choice.
