These products are among more than a hundred designed by students from the Industrial Design program at the University of the Republic of San Marino and the IUAV Design program at the University of Venice. They have been working on projects involving natural fibres and artisans in Bangladesh and Vietnam, in a fair trade setting.

The results are a combination of functional modern aesthetics and traditional design.
