Makersleeve is the first sleeve for smart devices that can be made on demand, anywhere in the world, by anyone. Designed following the belief that no products should be mass produced, but created specifically for each customer in exactly the way you need it.

Unlike your average laptop sleeve, a Makersleeve is only made after it is sold. Due to it’s clever design, it can be made in a matter of minutes anywhere in the world using nothing but fabric and a laser cutter. The digital design automatically transforms to perfectly fit your device.



Fashion and garments have the potential to make us proud, we can’t let our joy be spoiled by a sense of guilt over how they are made. My projects aim to challenge existing norms and practices in this industry, by showing radically different alternatives. 

Inspired by modern technology and following the open-source philosophy I work on innovative projects in collaborations with both designers and researchers. 

We all share the same future, and what it looks like is entirely up to us, my aim is to inspire and develop the brightest possible version.
