I’ve had a couple of failures when it comes to the purse lining. First I tried sewing, but with a semi rigid material, that didn’t work well. Then I found out the material I was testing didn’t take folding all that well. For a origami look, that’s not good. Formulor.de is the same type of …
I’ve used different, local Norwegian companies to create my parts before. Laser cutting acrylic and stainless steel, acrylic sheet bending and water jet aluminum cutting. So why is RazorLAB such a big step forward?
Got the parts shipped from RazorLAB the other day! A little bump in the road was that some of the parts were too big, but a good thing it wasn’t my fault. RazorLAB used a couple of hours the next day to make new parts and ship them imideately.
So, what’s the status? Most important: Almost all parts will now be made out of acrylic.
Found them together with the acrylic ones from previous post. Inspired by bees/wasps eyes and armor. Made two pairs. Was used as accessories at a fashion show.

Just got new acrylic parts delivered from Plastkomponenter, but they are unusable. Top and bottom are not parallel, and the handles will not join nicely. Crrrrap :/
Nothing much has happened in a while. At least not until the last couple of weeks, but now things are happening. I’ve made the first real prototype, and it has come as far as it ever will. The design has a lot of issues, but has also given me some good answers and new ideas.
Nothing much to say. Really cool belts made from recycled bike tubes. I got one my self, and really happy with the design. Edit: Seems their belts and accessories are out of production. But, if you got a belt buckle your self, maybe it’s time to cut some bike tires?
The acrylic parts for the first prototype has arrived. Looks really good. The bend angles are correct and the bends doesn’t have cracks from bend tension. Aluminum parts are expected next friday.
Since last blog post about becomming a purse designer I’ve continued with idea #2. First task was to decide on proportions for the purse and all the different parts. That was last friday. Today I’ve been working on the hinges, connectiong the two parts that form the outer shell. Not sure yet, but I might …
After years of fumbling with a hobby project of mine, I finally got at it a couple a days ago. I started a little dream, designing womens purses. It’s not important that it is just womens purses, but that particular accessory has a couple of important success criteria. The most important parts of the idea …
