ONLY 30 bags cut - of our GRF shoe storing string bag( can be worn front or back)
The "Kesar" piece is next up in our creative series of products that use our innovative sneaker carriers and as #MovingPieces of art.
BIo: Babbuthepainter is a Toronto based creative entrepreneur and the founder of her globally recognized style of modern desi diaspora pop-art. Babbu has manifested the unheard voice of South Asian millennials in her artwork worldwide. And has made a name for herself and for her artwork across North America being featured in shows such as The Mindy Project.
Through the artist's eyes:When I was approached to do a collaboration with the sneaker bag brand Solepack I instantly had a vision of the illustration I wanted to create. Perception, prejudice, identities, womanhood, and their interpretation are themes that have been incorporated into my art since the beginning. I wanted to translate some of those themes into this collaboration. So, we created “Kesar” a first-generation Punjabi-Canadian teenager from Toronto, that wears both her identities proudly. She loves to play basketball and has a freakishly large sneaker collection for a teenager....Kesar felt right for this collaboration as there is such a lack of brown female diaspora representation within the mainstream sports, sneaker world. We hope you love our collaboration as much as we loved making it.
