Inspired by the knight armours used in the medieval times, the V Bag is an extreme example of high technology at the service of ideas.
The textile used for the V Bag is a particular one, is rapid prototyping textile, which means that this beauty came out in one piece out of a laser-sintering machine (SLS). To put it in easy words a powerful laser beam fuses small particles of a plastic powder, materialising the information given by a 3D digital model of the object.
If you are wondering how this high tech silver plated textile feels I can tell you is a very pleasant touch: it feels smooth, flowing, it has a good weight and a metal-like temperature.
