Project Name: Bounds
Project Website:

Bounds is a leather goods brand focused on creating heirlooms to be passed along from loved one to loved one with an emphasis on product longevity, responsible material resourcing, and utilizing natural and biodegradable materials. The core concept of the brand and project is ‘object as storyteller’ and how an item can be witness to its own creation and participate meaningfully in your daily life. This project is a reflection upon 2020 and how during the pandemic I felt connected to certain items that my family had passed along to me when I couldn’t be with them in person. My family is fond of heirlooms and that interest has been continued with me, which I have then manifested in this project.
