Naveena Denim Ltd. (NDL) x Muur NYC - Workshop and DIY Kit
Craftwork continues! The DIY project we launched at Kingpins24 is continuing into the real world with a new Artisan Collaboration Workshop with Kingpins Indigo Museum. This season, Naveena Denim Ltd (NDL) and MUUR – two companies with a shared vision for sustainable methods and practices – team up for a DIY workshop. Attendees will create a tote bag using NDL’s Dyneema Denim, MUUR leather and batik fabric.
The workshop will be held on April 21, the second day of Kingpins’ Amsterdam show, from 2-3pm. And in celebration of our return to in-person shows, the kits are being offered for a special 50% off price. You can also purchase the kit on-site at the show. And if you prefer to complete the kit at home, we’ll send you a video to show you how.
The project consists of DIY Kits and a Workshop where participants will create a tote bag using NDL Dyneema denim x Muur NYC leather by assembling the pieces themselves.
We’ll develop a denim tote bag with leather trims. The Naveena denim quality has the Dyneema fiber which makes it very strong. Our artisans will create the denim tote bags as well as the leather handles for it and a leather label. The customer who gets the DYI kit will be able to attach the leather handles themselves as well as placing the leather label wherever they like. The artisans will also create a small interior pocket made of our batik fabric that the customer can also attach to the bag themselves. During the workshop we’ll show a video of the artisans making the bag and instructions on how the customer can finish the bag to their liking. I’ll be able to explain who the artisans are and what they do and Naveena can explain about their denim quality and the special features.
