2018 Finalist Cristina Lozano Carbajal CL Design

Cristina Lozano Carbajal FINALIST'S PROFILE

What is your bag made out of?
It is one of a kind line of handbags made with vinyl by Honduran local craftsmen on a limited edition.

Where do you source your materials?
I source my material on the local down town fabric market, where all the craftsmen sell their product.

What is your design inspiration & why is working with green/eco friendly products important to you?
My design inspiration is the Honduran identity, the customs and traditions. For me it is important to work with green/eco friendly leather or vinyl because I want to make sure to contribute and foment the artistic development under a helping sustainable planet base.

Have you heard of Basic Adhesives?
I have never heard of Basic Adhesives before, but it seems interesting.

Would you be interested in learning more about eco-friendly glue and edge paint?
Actually I'm very interested, and I'll be happy to learn all about it.
