  • Packaging with feedback from mid-review



    For the packaging, I have two directions so far. One is a typical type of hat box which is shaped in short cylinder form. Because of knitting template can be rolled-up, the form of hat box is the most compact package. The other is flat package which is from the feedback in mid-review. The reason of this choice is its eco-friendly way. The knitting template has also the possibility that the body can be separable and fit in flat. The flat package benefits at the point of less material use.

    Compared to both directions, flat package has a benefit which I mention right before. However, the flat package might be thrown away easily because there is no reason to keep unstable item. On the other hand, the hat box has a potential in terms of sustainability, because elderly people love to keep physical items even news papers. They might want to keep the flat package too, but there is one significant difference between two directions, memory.

    Therefore, the hat box form might be fit in my targets area well. Also, by packaging in hat box form, one story possibly happens that a care worker brings the “Day To day” in the package which is hat box form to his or her client, and the client keeps the package as well, because this is such a scene that one person presents a clothing to a friend.
