Swedish-born local solar-mesh-bag fabricator extraordinaire, Erika Eckerstrand, from Designs Of Erika, will be joining Molecule for a fun approach to product presentation. She will literally bring her whole manufacturing studio, including rolls of fabrics, scissors, and her industrial sewing machine to fabricate custom bags onsite!
The kick, that you will be able to have a say about selecting the fabric for an exclusive iPad Envelope Bag fabricated by Erika on site, Friday and Saturday only. Erika’s complete inventory of bags will also be available for purchase, which include her famous Messenger Bags, as well as Cosmetic and Travel Bags, Wristlets, Passport Envelopes, Baskets and more. They will all be in one place for 2 days, a great opportunity to stock up on needed personal bags or storage baskets, or find a great gift for a special friend. Come visit us for this fresh trunk event to see Erika at work as she makes your bag of choice.
The first international graduate of the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico, Erika has transformed hardy materials originally made to withstand the elements into sleek, contemporary pieces that are as practical as they are stylish.
A wine rack, viewed as purely functional by many, morphs into sculpture with Erika’s vision and nod to Scandinavian design. Erika says her goal as a designer is to “create pieces that both enhance and beautify the world around us.”
Friday and Saturday June 5th and 6th, 10am to 5pm
