A mortal bag made of out of the bag you are born in, namely the placenta. Embracing the uniqueness of the individual, we created a bag as an addition of the human body, focusing on the placenta, with the ultimate goal of mimicking the human skin.
Our bag is made out of bio-textiles. The experimentation has been merely with natural ingredients to mimic a placenta skin. These bio-skins turned out to be very similar to the human skin and are long lasting. The base of the bag is a thin and bendable material, like a non-woven fleece or linen, onto which our self-made bio textile is attached with suture.
