Molly Younger — Handcrafted Lilac Wallet
Australian designer maker Molly Younger is known for her innovative approach to making and design. Sitting somewhere between art, sculpture and wearable fashion, each one-of-a-kind bag from Younger's new collection is handmade from natural latex moulds in Melbourne.
To cast the bags, she applies natural latex by hand to heavy plaster moulds that look like sculptures, and reinforces the handles with cotton. Younger has been making garments and artworks for over eight years, since studying at RMIT University in Melbourne, where mould making was a focus of her work.
"My current collection of latex luggage came about as I wanted to develop accessories for everyday life, with a grounding in conceptual practice, continuing to utilise mould making, casting and latex'.
While the bags look delicate, they are incredibly strong and made with reinforced handles which allow you to hold substantial weight.
*** Please note that on the collection presented at Craft the Molly Younger Logo is on the irregular plaster texture side, rather than the bubble side.
