‘Monkey Madness’ Bags Were Created Using 3D Printing

(3D Prints of the World) Belgian brand Kipling, known for its bags in crinkled nylon fabric and the monkey zipper, has designed a 3D printed bag with a network of plastic monkeys. Named “Monkey Madness”, the bags were printed in polyamide and epoxy using 3D printing technology. The design is based on its iconic Monkey Madness collection as well as the mascot of the brand: a monkey.
Established in 1987 by three friends in Antwerp, Kipling is named after the British writer Rudyard Kipling, the author of The Jungle Book. Kipling designers have been looking for new technology to design classic handbag. Using 3D printing technology, the brand demonstrates its ability to renew itself and combine innovation with the classic style.
