The Shamone Bag

The Shamone Bag is an intelligent handbag that will only unlock with a secret touch. It gives the owner the ability to set a personal passcode, unique to each individual, to access the bag.

The bag uses conductive thread integrated into the design that is programmed to trigger the bag to open when it is touched in a certain way.

This design idea can be customised to work with a handbag of any fabric, shape or size.

 This is a new and fun way to interact with your handbag and at the same time it gives the owner reassurance that no one else can access the bag.
