Discovered by Les Jeunes Gens Modernes :

"Tell me what you bring with you in your suitcase, and I will tell you who you are.

Soon graduated from the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague (in The Netherlands), in the department of Textile Design, Jolien Hanemaaijer uses her experience with traveling as a an important theme in her work. By examining what she calls “homing process”, she imagined two portable objects that have the double function of a suitcase and a show display, which allow you to bring with you your favorite stuff that can hardly be left behind! Perfect dream tools for what Hanemaai names “modern-day adventurers”.

“This project started from a personal experience of extensive traveling and having to live out of one suitcase. Choices had to be made about what to bring and what to leave behind. While making these choices was hard it also made it possible to get rid of unnecessary things. The important and good items that you decide to bring are the objects that define your identity.”
