TheBétaVersion's handmade leather bags and accessories are available at the webshop.
TheBétaVersion brand was created at the studio of Hungarian designer Zsófi Rainer and brand manager Cili Varga in 2010. The brand creates unique leather bags and accessories, all made by hand at very high standards, with an emphasis on the subtleness of the details. After making it to the finals at the event, TheBétaVersion’s PIXELFOLK collection has won the special award of WAMP Hungarian Design Market at “Re-think/re-button! Magyar is the Mode!” fashion show in 2011.
The collection was inspired by the traditional hand-woven fabrics from the „Somogy”, „Sárköz” and „Nógrád” subregions of Hungary. The well known patterns of folk art (birds, geometric and stylized human figures) are transformed into pixel patterns, which then are pierced into the leather and felt surface. Each PIXELFOLK bag is spliced together out of a single sheet, bearing a symbolic reference to the traditional method of weaving.
