What is your design inspiration & why is working with green/eco friendly products important to you?
I´m very glad of discovering basics adhesives from this award. I have being working for the leather industry in Ubrique (Spain) and one of the reasons I decided to design eco friendly bags was because the workers at the manufacture had a lot of risk using adhesives.

Have you heard of Basic Adhesives?
Of course I am, I have been taking a look at the website and I would like to try some products like eco-friendly glue, glue paint or pressure sensitive (turning edges).

Would you be interested in learning more about eco-friendly glue and edge paint?
Yes, I will appreciate if you send us information about eco-friendly materials.
