The bags of this collection are a limited edition of 100 pieces. They are made of cork and printed in a screen process with an abstract pattern taken from the maritime flag alphabet: hoisting „N above C“ in this language is the distress at sea signal. The combination of the floating material cork and the symbolism of the flags sets a signal for refugees in distress at sea. At the same time the entire proceeds are donated to the corresponding aid organisation.
Statement by the Jury
The bag collection makes good use of its idealistic content in a playful way. The innovative material cork convinces from a functional viewpoint.
