The design challenge of this recreation is “how do you create one product with materials that would otherwise be discarded?” I choose large plastic juice containers that found from the smoothie store “Freshly Squeezed” to work with.I want to allow the juice containers to have an “afterlife” in a different context and design a solution with an added value so I designed into a lightweight suitcase. The use of fabric has allowed it to have a different look, I also made another purse out of juice container. The fabric is adapted from used clothes and local thrift store.
