Encordé bags are made of DuPont™ Tyvek®, a wonderful material that looks like paper but has unexpected properties. It is waterproof and almost unbreakable. To stiffen the Tyvek®, a thick rope goes around the bag, rigidify the bottom and the sides, creates a pocket in the front and ends in handles. This project idea was born during a one-week workshop at ECAL while we were still studying. Especially for the Swiss Incubator event at the world economic forum in Tianjin, we developed this idea and designed two brand new models: A weekender and a backpack.
