Doreen Westphal, a well-known designer based in Eindhoven (Netherlands), grew up and was trained as a tailor under the former East German regime.
Experimentation fuses with a stylish and clear design to create innovative, socially and environmentally conscious products. Under the label Mensch Made, Westphal upcycles her bags, messenger bags, purses... with respect for people and the planet, mainly from leftover leather material from a shoe factory.
The Measure tote shopping bag, marked on the back with a scale starting at 1 and ending at 5 is the icon of the ‘Measure Collection’. Inspired by research showing that people throw away 20% of the food they buy, Westphal challenges the consumer with her bag: fill the shopping bag and end up throwing away the last 20%, or just fill it up to number 4.
Her handmade bags are all real leather, rough and recycled, but delightfully attractive, and boast a high-quality finish.
