The Building Block + Waka Waka Collection Changes When Exposed to the Sun

The Building Block + Waka Waka collection is comprised of purses that react to the sun much like a person does. Not in an emotional way, but in a physical one. Essentially, it changes color as though it were sun-tanning at the beach. Each handbag has been made out of time-treated leather, which is what allows this unique reaction to occur.

Although that might be enough to set apart the handbags in the Building Block + Waka Waka collection from others, they have been given unique shapes that make them look more like art pieces than accessories. For instance, one purse sports a squiggly wooden handle while another has geometric blocks embedded in it. The Building Block + Waka Waka collection also has tassels to further customize them.
