Haptic Lab

Sailing Ship Kite, white


Aerodynamic without remote controls or engines and constructed entirely without commercial factory parts or labor, these designs soar. Emily Fischer founded Brooklyn-based Haptic Lab to counter the rapid digitization of our lives and celebrate the real, physical world we live in. Her handcrafted kites are built together with Fair Trade artisans in Bali and Indonesia out of bamboo. They are inspired by traditional ships, sailing through air instead of water. Though they look delicate, bamboo has greater tensile strength than steel, and can shrug off crashes on beaches or grass. They also make beautiful decorations displayed indoors.

Handmade in Bali or Indonesia.
Ships flat in a kraft envelope.

Includes: Basic kite flying twine and easy to use assembly instructions.

Make sure the kite is assembled properly – please reference Haptic Lab’s handy kite assembly video.
The sailing ship flies best in a very strong wind on a beach or at a hilltop.

Size: approximately 63 x 69 cm
Material: white ripstop nylon, bamboo, and string.
