PLAAT: A Bag Made of Laser Cut Wood

Working on a collaboration called PLAAT, designers Quinten Peuling & Wisse Trooster, of qoowl (remember the wooden sunglasses?), and menswear designer Dewi Bekker designed a ‘technical’ bag made out of laser cut wood. The result of the cutting is a flexible wooden bag with a linear pattern on it.


The flexible wooden exterior is paired with a leather interior letting the bag open completely flat. A leather cord is threaded through the inside and pulled tight to achieve the shape of the bag.


Inside, there are two pockets for your stuff, like your keys or your ID. PLAAT easily converts from a clutch to a shoulder bag if you like.
