“Do you remember a time as a kid you would carry a small water bottle bag? As we grow up, why hasn’t there been a more attractive and appealing option? Hydration plays a key role in our lives as children as much as being adults.” says the designer, “Yet, we tend to purchase more PET bottles off the shelf now as we make a less conscious effort to bring our bottles out, thus damaging the environment as the landfills continue to pile up with plastic waste. ”
NOK’s design is kept simple, with the strength and length of the belt as the sling or harness that can withstand the weight of the bottle. The carefully detailed openings in the shirt increase the breathability of the outfit and allow it to be fit on any belt of choice. The neck warmer, lined with an insulating foam piece, is repurposed as the pouch so the user can have their beverage at the right temperature. With magnets hidden within the flaps and on the pouch, the flap will always stay secured without flapping away.
