Interviewer: Today we’re joined by Ecko designer Diana Guerra, who’s going to tell us what motivated here to start this beautiful handbag collection. Hi Diana, how are you?
Diana Guerra: Hi, we’re good and you.
Interviewer: I’m very good, thank you. Can you tell us a little bit about your background and what motivated you to start this beautiful handbag collection?
Diana Guerra: Well, actually I’m an eco designer like why I call my self like this because I have a background as a designer but right now, I’m studying masters in environmental science.
What moved me specifically is the matter of reusing materials and gives the change to that material to go further.
Interviewer: How long does it take you to have a hand bag? Let’s say this size.
Diana Guerra: Well, this size, it takes like a day and a half because it has four layer of material. If you see the material they’re made of they’re just like very thin. Nothing in the product tells you where it comes from. I don’t work alone; I work with the NGO in Mexico. It’s not like here that the products are going to be recycled, over there, they’re just dumped and people are paid to take the chip bags away.
Interviewer: I notice that you have a variety of colors and you know something for everyone. Do you want to talk about this one in particular? Because I think the way that you designed it is so creative.
Diana Guerra: This is made of code bars. So we take out this part so all of this texture is made up of code bars
Interviewer: As a consumer, I feel a hundred percent better when I wear something you know that I know is environmentally conscious like your hand bags are.
Diana Guerra: I could work in other things but this is just my life. This is what I love, this is what I want to do and I think if everyone, if they’re ready or capable to make a change then we will end up having different world.
