Fraenck x Ignite Award
The Ignite Award is a yearly award for social entrepreneurship. .A beautiful initiative, brought to life by the Anton Jurgens Foundation. Fraenck made it to the finals (while still named Ho&Mulder) at the end of 2017! For the last edition, we made some beautiful shoulder bags from their vibrantly colored banners, for the audience of the competition.
From used banners to cool shoulder bags
With banners, the difficulty lies in making the most of the available material while still ensuring a beautiful end product. Nobody is looking for a plain bag! Luckily, IGNITE employs some great graphic designers, as can be seen from the vibrantly designed prints, making for a distinct but elegant bag!
Leoni Delsink, coordinator of social entrepreneurship at the Anton Jurgens Foundation:
“.The items made by Fraenck reflect their makers: stylish, honest and sustainable. For IGNITE, they produced custom made bags we happily used as corporate gifts. We are proud to have helped Ratna and Pascal as finalists for the IGNITE award and strongly believe in the powerful change these two designers envision.”
Fraenck has designed and produced a large number (1400+) of bicycle bags made from recycled banners. In collaboration with Design X Ambacht.
Another cool project, for another sustainable bank. 1000 shopping bags, made from leftover cloth.
For this great hotel we made 100-ish shopping bags made from façade cloth, from the temporary court in Amsterdam.
Municipality of Zwolle
Shoppers made of cutting floor leftovers. Buitink manufactured a canopy for the bus terminal at Zwolle Central Station, we made use of the leftover material.
For the sustainable bank of the Netherlands, we've done multiple projects, including laptop sleeves made from old flags
