Swiss design talent Sabina Bragger recycles left-overs to create new purses, bags, belts and watch bracelets for men and women. Here, she explains how this innovative idea came about. “All of this started while I was studying for my Bachelor’s degree,” remembers Bragger. “At that time, I realised that classic textile design wasn’t necessarily the right choice for me. Instead, I was keen to create something on my own, something completely new.” So, the young designer learnt everything about the various sustainable uses of production remnants and soon discovered that leather can be made from fish skin. Motivated and inspired, Bragger contacted Tropenhaus Frutigen, a local fish farm in Bern. Equally fascinated by this idea, the company has supported Sabina Bragger ever since.
