Alternative lifestyle and street culture magazine Nookmag brings together local illustrators and designers in The Drawstring Project, an initiative that presents homegrown works and encourages camaraderie amongst creatives.

The Drawstring Project aims to spark a chain of designer collaborations, starting with designer numero uno, illustrator and art educator Padlin. Each designer in The Drawstring Project was given a cotton drawstring-cum-tote-bag as their canvas, as well as the freedom to choose who they’d most like to work with.

With no restricting themes, and no holds barred, designers were given full reign over their designs. The nominated designer will then continue the series with his/her own nomination, and so on. The full Drawstring Project collection, consisting of 13 works by a total of seven artists, showcases the diversity of our art scene – from the dark and mysterious to the quirky and vibrant. Find out who the contributing artists are in this video!

Measuring 14” x 18”, the drawstring-cum-tote bags feature washed-out prints and can be worn several ways. It includes one inner pocket. Series One (first seven bags) is now available on the Nookmag Store. Series Two will be launched shortly in May and it will see six more designs being rolled out.

Nookmag will be premiering The Drawstring Project in a one-time only physical booth at the upcoming TLP Art Market. It will be held at The Working Capitol (1 Keong Saik Road) on 11 April 2015, from 2pm – 8pm.
