Hi! I am Cristina Paniagua, the creative mind and hands behind Pendular pocket.
My academic training encompasses Fine Arts and Design. My expertise is focused on design and handcraft bags and wallets with several materials. Also designing patterns has became a main part of my creative process.
I love to make bags. I find them very appealing objects, not only their shapes but also conceptually. A bag works in a multitude ways: as an ornament you carry with yourself, but it also works just over a table or hanging from a rack. And we cannot forget its most useful service: as a storage piece. For all these things, a bag is a very interesting object to design. And this is what I do for living: exploring its possibilities always keeping in mind the practicality, beauty and comfort.
I've been always very concerned about sustainability focused on fair Trade and local production. I consider very important to support and to understand small businesses like mine where benefits are very tight and prices are more realistic within our own context.
As this project has grown over the years, this concern has been amplified to other important issues such as being kind, ethical and conscious, not only with people, but with our environment too.
I feed my energy doing what I love the most and being honest with the product I make.
I hope you enjoy my work ^_^ Thanks for passing by!
