Marco Tinajero, a Mexico City based industrial designer, presents us the Paach Pack. Paach is Mayan for "back" and reveals its origin since the products are produced with an ancient weaving technique in a Mayan location near Yucatan (Mexico). The product is the result of a project on giving traditional techniques a new dimension to use and preserve local craftsmanship.
The original version is made out of natural fibers though due to its scarcity the local artisans currently work with a plastic alternative offering more flexibility, durability and color variations. Marco is currently looking for an alternative natural fiber in order to make the Paach-Pack a full biodegradable product. Find him at www.oqramdesign.com for any suggestions.
