Susan Szatmáry launches bag collection using waste material from Bolon
Accessories designer, Susan Szatmáry, launches a limited-edition bag collection made from BOLON’s waste material. Over the years, BOLON has experimented with its woven material and collaborated with a number of international and domestic creators, primarily in the design industry.
“I wanted to create a more sustainable collection. When I learnt more about BOLON’s history, such as its production in Sweden and all their collections contain recycled material, I knew I wanted to use their woven vinyl waste and mix it with leather using the best Italian craftmanship, to receive a collection that meet my standards,” says Susan Szatmáry
Susan Szatmáry has the world as her workplace. She has worked with fashion industry leaders, including Alexander McQueen, Celine, Elie Saab and Paco Rabanne. Earlier this year, she was also awarded Accessory Designer of the Year at Elle Awards with her feminine and luxurious line under her own name.
“When Susan contacted us and told us about her idea to make bags from our waste material, it felt right from the first second. As we have sustainability in our DNA and get inspiration from young creators and their visions, we felt directly that this collaboration was a must. Seeing our woven flooring material in a feminine and luxurious bag collection in impeccable Italian craftmanship feels fantastic,” says Annica Eklund, the company’s Chief Creative Officer
The collection consists of the classic Port Doré clutch (950 euro) and the new model for the season, Saint Paul (450 euro), a softer pouch with a chain handle. The one of a kind bags together with a matching necklace and earrings are available worldwide at susanszatmary.com.
