Pikkpack is a revolutionary flat-packed footwear that you design and assemble yourself. A minimalist, yet high quality must have piece that promotes the use of less material. Sara Gulyas, the designer of Pikkpack, has over 10 years of experience in leather design. After experimenting with footwear for a long time, she wanted to create a shoe that would encourage its wearer’s participation in the manufacturing process. Her inspiration came from a traditional Hungarian shoe called Bocskor, which was made from one piece of leather. This innovative footwear is a bridge between industrial design and authentic hand production.
You’ll get the whole kit in a canvas bag that comprises two pairs of shoelaces, the leather upper and sole sewn together in a flat form, and the instruction manual on how to put the shoes together. There are two colours of leather and six different shoelace colours available. You can make your shoes truly personalised by choosing the colour combination that fits your style and personality the most. Once you received the selected kit, the only thing you have to do is to lose yourself for around an hour in an unusual activity and to become maker yourself. Assembling Pikkpack is a meditative and fun process, not to mention that you have a pair of snug loafers at the end.
Pikkpack is not just about a stylish pair of shoes, but about playfulness and involvement. It reacts to the growth of a DIY ethic in consumption and production, while promoting the importance of sustainable design. Because you are involved in the making, we can ship these shoes to you in lighter and smaller packages, using less material and conserving natural resources as a result. We are on a mission to engage people in a fun and rewarding experience and, in the meantime, to change the way they think about the clothing they wear.
