“Ian Aguilar is a Multimedia artist based out of Compton, California. His current body of work consists of surreal ceramic flora, inspired by the rare plants he grows in his garden studio. Ian translates those fleeting and ever-changing floral forms into permanent sculptures with highly textured and colorful surfaces. These sculptures are his way of expressing natures visual caution signs; “beware", "eat me", "look but don’t touch”. Each floral sculpture appears to be caught in the act of its natural role within the fantasy environment from which it grows; oozing, reaching for light, eating, or blooming.
Bolsas del Futuro is a project by Casa Tamarindo that explores how we can use “the bag” as a platform to create a more sustainable world. We see each one of our bags as art pieces that question what sustainable craftsmanship is in the 21st century.
All of our bags are intentionally made on both sides of the most crossed border in the world (Tijuana and San Diego in case you didn’t know)
We collaborate with local artisans to develop a regional style that is uniquely our own. Our bags are made with the following waste materials:
- Discarded flour sacs from our local bakeries.
- Old seatbelts from cars at our junkyards.
- Dead-stock upholstery fabrics from two brothers that make couches.
We work with a local factory that has a long history of making heavy-duty bags for the outdoors. All of our bags are high-quality, limited-edition, and they even contain a laptop sleeve!95.001028
