Susan Szatmáry makes use of BOLON’s waste material in new bag collection
One person's waste could be the same person's treasure.

In many ways, Susan Szatmáry has already made the world her oyster. She was born in Baghdad and raised in Sweden, studied in Italy and has lived in London and Paris. Her international and modern design approach has landed her jobs at Alexander McQueen, Céline, Elie SAAB, and Paco Rabanne just to name a few. Today she also runs the new self-titled brand SUSAN SZATMÁRY that operates in Sweden.

And it is in Sweden where Susan Szatmáry has launched her latest project. Szatmáry turned to Swedish rug and flooring solution brand BOLON to make use of their waste vinyl material.

— When Susan contacted us and told us about her idea to make bags out of our waste material it instantly felt like the right thing. We already have sustainability in our DNA and always want to help young creators and visionaries. To see our woven floor material in a feminine and luxurious bag collection, crafted in top-notch Italian artisan feels amazing, says Annica Eklund, Chief Creative Officer at BOLON.

The collection consists of a clutch bag, a pouch bag and specially designed jewellery. The limited collection is available at
