ReDO designs and creates mainly handmade cork handbags and bags inspired by architecture:
Fundamental principles of the geometry of straight lines and patterns combined with transformable morphs and volumes can be found in each ReDO bag.
ReDO brand is the brainchild of Greek architect Maria Mavroudi.
Maria Mavroudi is also the head designer of the ReDO brand. She studied architecture in University of Patras (Greece) and completed her postgraduate studies in Barcelona.
While in Barcelona the idea of the ReDO concept was born, when she decided that her creativity shall not be limited solely into large surfaces, but also needs to be expressed in smaller items, useful and practical.
Redo creates bags that serve the needs of the user through functionality and versatility, having as reference clean geometries, while emphasizing the morphology, quality and final finish.
A bag according to Maria is an extremely important accessory, since it “enriches with its own unique view her simple, elegant and minimal style” (sic).
ReDO creates multifunctional handbags that can change shape and can be used in many different ways, accompanying a woman throughout the day. Always made from the finest materials like cork fabric and premium leather.
Maria personally takes care of each part of the production, from start (the idea) to finish (final creation) and creates the bags in her studio in Egio (Peloponnese in Greece).
ReDO NARA - the cornerstone of the ReDO multifunctional handbags collection
ReDO "Nara" is a backpack (or tote? - keep reading) made from cork and leather.
"Nara" bag has a well thought function and can change its shape: It can be a backpack or a shoulder bag, a shoulder bag or a tote and vice versa.
This bag is ideal for a woman with a busy lifestyle.
She can start her day with a backpack for her yoga class, change it to a shoulder bag or to a tote bag while shopping etc. And all this without changing bags. Just by pulling the mountaineering cord, a new design and function emerges.
It is easy to maintain (just use baby wipes or water and natural detergent to clean it) and durable, since cork has attributes of leather while being an eco-friendly alternative.
