It is a pouf made from upcycled leather by grinding scraps of leather into dust. We combined GRS-certified upcycled leather which NAKES — a brand based on an eco-friendly philosophy — uses for its leather handbags with Kimsgoods’ manufacturing technologies for leather accessories to design a leather pouf with elements of a handbag. Handbag handles attached to the pouf could be practically used to move the heavy leather pouf to another spot, and they also serves as an eye-catching element of the design. We divided each side of the pouf into two sections and used an accentuating color for the cut edge to use every leftover scrap of leather. The sample was made of black leather this time. However, combining a variety of colors and applying different colors for the cut edge will create different feelings.

Designer.NAKES Profile

I have mostly designed clothing and handbags but it was great to have an opportunity to make home and décor items. This was something I’ve always wanted to do. We saw the potential of making various home and décor items with the upcycled leather we use, and it was fun to try new things while we put our heads together with Kimsgoods to come up with a process.

Maker.LK Profile

We have put many thoughts and efforts into the technical aspects to produce poufs with a minimal design in the most efficient way. In particular, we focused on minimizing the risks of all the minor and major issues of mass production which were not identified from the sample. It was impressive to see the materials of handbags we see every day being reinterpreted into the living category and created as a completely different product.
