About The Design: Maori
Early inhabitants of New Zealand arrived from Eastern Polynesia on canoes between 10 and 800 BC. These pioneers developed a culture all their own, including language, social norms, and of course the Tā Moko.
Unlike a tattoo, the skin is chiseled rather than pierced. This exclusive art was important to the Maori. Each drawing was unique, detailing the narrative of the bearer’s life story.
Maori markings are a series of sweeping spirals and curved shapes, in which each side of the face corresponds to the other, producing an elegant yet awe-inspiring symmetry.
Like all true art, these ancient chisels spoke stories open to interpretation. While infusing an observer with its intoxicating beauty, it may have been filling the lungs of an enemy with dread.
Here at Bonne, we consider these decorative lines to be a natural choice for expressing individualistic taste in a most compelling way. Whether it is the sweeping gold patterns that generate mesmeric symmetry or the vacant spaces caught in the dizzying repetitiveness of the mosaic, the enchanting beauty of this ancient masterpiece captivates.
About Bonne Makeup Case / Cosmetics Case
Bonne’s Hip Case is a versatile multi-function go-to accessory with a size, form factor and style that lends itself for use in a variety of ways. As a pencil case for students, an arts supplies organizer for creative professionals and artists, a makeup case for girls, a jewelry pouch, to carry electronic accessories like phones or battery packs or as a toiletry case that is just perfect for overnight trips or weekends away, the Bonne Pencil Case / Stationery Organiser fits the role.
Its 22cm length is ample to accommodate long slender items like pencils, rulers, cutters and brushes while its 8cm width and 5cm depth make it perfect for bulkier, chunkier, less slender objects like travel-size sets of shampoos/conditioners, sunscreen, compacts, foundation tubes, eye shadow pallets, bracelets, scissors, ‘slime’ containers, monster sized glue sticks and tools of trade for creative professionals and artists. A separate zippered mesh pocket on the inside of the zippered flip-top offers a separate compartment for keeping smaller items secure.
The case is made from tough 600D polyester with a pleasantly smooth and strong gauge 8 zipper that goes all the way around enabling the top to flip completely open providing unhindered single handed access to its contents. When you’re done with it, simply zip up the case and transform it back into a secure pouch you can take with you anywhere.
The Bonne Pencil Case / Stationery Organiser is a substantial, sturdy and flexible case that is surprisingly versatile with dimensions that make it perfect for fitting into unused nooks and crannies in hand bags, totes, travel bags, school bags, satchels and backpacks.
