Following tshirtOS 2.0, Switch Embassy was accepted into the hardware incubator, Highway1 to further develop a prototype that used our innovative flexible LED screen.
From a t-shirt, we went to straight to a luxury good. We wanted to design something that people would cherish and hold value with without any added technology. A simple and elegant fold over clutch design was chosen and prototyped. Theia is a convertible design; she can be held like a clutch or clip the long detachable strap to let you wear her folded or unfolded in an over-the-shoulder or crossbody style.
