Product designer Kate Pearson is inspired by the emerging world of new materials and wearable tech. She completed a Masters in Design to develop the first prototypes for what is now known as the VELA LED Handbag.
Established in 2014, FABRIKK debuted the VELA LED Handbag; the world's first internally lined handbag with a new automated LED fibre-optic illuminating material to help you find things at night. Kate also works with new eco cork tree bark materials from Portugal and Italy to make the FABRIKK collection of accessories, hats, and jewellery.
Ethical sourcing and quality local hand-production in the UK are also important to kate when developing the cruelty-free and functional accessories for her brand FABRIKK.
