Tyvek Garments and Tyvek Belt Bag from Polish Artist Agnieszka Sukiennik

Agnieszka Sukiennik is an artist living and working in Warsaw, Poland, using Tyvek for her illustration and fashion design work.

The unique picture of a colorful and charming Robin in a magic garden was inspired by the book "The Secret Garden", written by Frances Hodgson Burnett. The external surface of the belt bag is covered with illustrations and the internal surface is covered with handmade typography of "The Secret Garden" quotations.

The whole process of creation starts with a lot of sketches. I drew the illustration, designed the belt bag, choose the right fabric and met my dressmaker. In this project I decided to combine
