Creator Series: Ep. 2
We have a winner!
It's the end of week 3 and we're feeling the creative juices flowin'!
We asked you to show us your creative side on Instagram for a chance to win a pair of Baabuks and this week we chose a winner.
Beck Weishaar wowed us with their creative product concept for a school project.
Beck took the concept of a wool hiking boot to the next level and designed one using all-natural materials (including pineapple) & a little inspiration from Baabuk.
Check out a bit below:
Beck is a Product Design student and spotted the slippers in a downtown store.
Inspired by wool's natural qualities & year-round temperature regulation, Beck set out to create something versatile.
"I wanted to [create] a versatile shoe for any train, for the adventurous consumer that didn't know where they would end up next,"
Beck: "During my research, I came across pineapple leather. It is a product by Pinatex that involves harvesting pineapple and not requiring any extra water, fertilizer, pesticides to make it. It is strong, versatile, breathable, light, flexible, and can easily be printed on, stitched, and cut."
"I wanted to [create] a shoe that was easy to clean, environmentally friendly, durable, and overall stylish...
With all the benefits of wool, I was able to achieve that in a shoe."
Thanks so much for sharing your creativity with us, Beck!
