WARP

Warp is a high-concept brand that sublimes traditional craftsmanship into creativity and innovation to make smart wearable accessories for women with a cutting-edge style.  Not following the usual design rules that govern fashion industry, WARP stands out with its non-conformist aesthetics that speak the mind of today’s young confident woman. Our first handbag, Hexella is an expression of a woman who is independent, bold and confident to stand out in the crowd.  As believers of technology transforming the face of human civilisation, we chose to use it in our design process. We use special computer algorithms to design three-dimensional shapes and then these shapes are folded into leather, making the design an development process much more efficient and accurate. The bags are handcrafted and are made in Lahore.

WARP was born out to create a new niche in handbags designs. We see usual shapes and forms everyday and wanted to reinvent to something that is more evolved and compliment our tech friendly lifestyles.

Hirra is a self taught designer.

I was greatly inspired by geometry and the art of origami. Its amazing how a single flat surface can be folded into different forms and structures and gives endless possibilities to make anything. The geometric facets of the bags that WARP makes are all achieved through origami techniques applied to leather.

We use computer algorithms to design the forms and structure of the bags first. The structures are create through different layers of materials brought together to make it more sturdy and durable. All bags are made with Goat Skin Leather with microfibre lining and alloy plated accessories.

We just started off at the start of this year from a single product. We have launched it in 7 colors now and are introducing new design variants in next two months. Our handbags are one of the most coveted ones in Pakistan as they are made with finest quality leather and craftsmanship. We operate in eco-friendly environment and have invested in upgrading the skills of our craftsmen by providing them infrastructural support and up gradation.
