Diving deep in to the textile world, K&E Concepts is exploring endless possibilities. Currently K&E has been working on several projects, one being Burlap repurposing. Rich and all natural repurposed Burlap sacks are collected from local businesses in the Washington, DC area and taken to K&E studios. These pouches feature rich texture and an invigorating scent of nature. Make a bold statement with an upcycled Burlap Pouch.
Esfandyar Poozesh and Kaveh Rezaei
K&E began to get inspiration by the uninspired. With a background in film and visual media, Kaveh is always looking for inspiration in the ocular world. He conceptualizes and pushes the design to the next level, constantly mixing media and various mediums together to create new long lasting products. Esfandyar is a musician, designer, and inventor, with a background in visual art and architecture; K&E has become a playground for his imagination. With their state of the art sewing machine, Esfandyar sews all of the creations in the K&E studio.
What got you started crafting?
But how did K&E come to be? Shortly after purchasing his first Apple
iPad, Esfandyar began the search for a suitable case to protect his
slick investment. However, he was disappointed by the lack of quality
and craftsmanship in the market. Left with nowhere to go, he
collaborated with long-time friend Kaveh to create their own custom
pouch. This opened the doors of creativity for them as they began
treating and using burlap for the development of a wide variety of
pouches. Thus began the birth of K&E Studios, where creativity and
innovation join hands.
