RUBBERIZED FABRIC FLIGHT POUCH
"Although I board an airplane more than 20 times in a month, what always bothers me the most is the security check at the gate. I made a pouch with a transparent window to deal with the annoyance of taking out my computer or tablet from my luggage. If you keep the zipper of the pouch open, you can pass easily through the security of most countries because it’s see through. Necessary items for during the flight such as masks and toothbrushes can be thrown in the pouch and carried to the seat which is extremely useful. Because of my actual experience, it was natural that I would want to commercialize this product. The fabric is recycled out of a poncho type raincoat used in the Indian military. We like the old type of rubber coating on the material that makes this item strong and durable in water."
Rubberized Fabric Series
"When finding new uses for the materials obtained overseas, we try to make use of the characteristics of the material as much as possible. A military poncho we purchased at the military’s surplus market was characterized by waterproof and water repellent fabric. The fabric is made by the traditional rubber coating process of natural rubber being painted between two thin pieces of fabric and crimped together. The sewing seams are covered with tape and a special adhesive from the back to ensure the item is completely waterproof. The only disadvantage is the smell of rubber remains. Although the smell will fade in time, it may bother some people in the beginning. After considering what products would benefit from being waterproof but not hindered by the rubber smell, we decided to use this material to make items such as umbrella bags and shoe bags. Each item is sewn together one by one after taking apart the original poncho so please allow for some marks and color differences on the items. We did make an extra effort when deciding on the position of the stitching so the water proof function is not weakened."
