Leung Jia Jun

Sustainable Products, Projects and Green Design Cultiver Orange handbag by Leung Jia Jun In the beverage industry, orange peels are disposed at a massive rate. This by-product generated from the process of fruit juice extraction is innately pliable and durable, thus presenting itself as a great leather alternative for handbag. The unique property of orange is that it produced a pleasant aroma. Hence the challenge is to find ways to preserve the material. It was concluded that mechanical dehydration removed all the moisture, and eliminated the process of decomposition. The production process was separated in four main stages – dehydration, cutting, assembling and stitching.
