Fake Plastic Bags – Made From Real Leather

Van Mensvoort
February 16th 2011

Fakeness is traditionally associated with inferiority; cheap Rolexes that break in two weeks, plastic Christmas trees, leaking silicone breasts, imitation caviar... However, in a society in which everything is a copy of a copy, the 'fake' seems to gain a certain authenticity.

Can you imagine anything more classy and luxurious than these anonymous, brand less, recognizable ‘throw away’ bags re-created in durable, high quality leather by Femke de Vries? Better than the real thing!

I love my little NextNature booklet so I decided to check this site. I am tickled to see one of my designs here! see my husband's and I design gallery website http://www.maus-haus.com and look for leather accesories. Maus Haus was founded in Beirut, lebanon in 2003

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Koert van Mensvoort: Is the artificial womb frankenstein-like symbol of (male) engineers trying to steal the magical womb from women? Or… is it a feminist project and needed to reach through equality between the sexes? I personally lean towards the latter. To me it feels like progress if a girl can tell a guy to carry the womb for a change.
