ChokStick: Tell us about yourself, where you are from, your favorite music band, the craziest thing you’ve done before?

Sorga: My Name is Tovi Sorga, Im an Aquarius and 39 years old. I grew up in Israel and me and my family moved to the UK in 1988. I lived in London for many years , If you are into art , design culture London I think is one of the best places on earth.

There is never a dull moment in London.

I love a very eclectic divers range of music.. From bands like Jane’s addiction, Joy Division, the cure to electronic music like simian mobile disco, sbtrkt, totally enormous extinct dinosaurs. Oh the list goes on and on, I’ve done lots of crazy things, most of them in Glastonbury festival.

ChokStick: 关于品牌创始人?

Sorga: 我是 Tovi Sorga, 典型水瓶座,今年39岁嘿嘿。我在以色列长大,1988年的时候举家移民来到英国(大家算算那时候我几岁?)我已经在英国居住了很多年了(大家再算算我在英国呆了多少年?),如果你是个喜欢艺术,喜欢设计的文艺青年,我想这个地球上没有其他地方会比英国更适合你了!在伦敦生活的每一秒钟都是有趣的。

我喜欢各种类型的音乐,Jane’s Addiction, Joy Devision, Simian Mobile Disco, Sbtrkt, Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs 都是俺的最爱啊!俺喜欢的乐队的list估计几天都写不完。我在格拉斯顿伯里音乐节的时候,做过很多很疯狂的事情(儿童不宜省略…),我热爱音乐!

ChokStick: Tell us about your brand, and the philosophy behind it.

Sorga: My Brand is all about taking everyday practical objects and accessories and giving them a vibrant striking look. Quality of craft, materials and finish. Leather generally tends to get associated with earthy colours, my work gives leather a new edge.

ChokStick: 关于设计理念?

Sorga: 我的创作,是把日常中一些司空见惯的东西,通过自己的创造力,赋予他们充满活力的新生命,从而变得引人注目。更多的情况下,皮革一般都是很朴实很常见的颜色,但我通过结合其他的技术,让它变得更加有吸引力。我特别在意工艺、材料与质量,所以我的作品除了有光鲜的外表,也有上乘的质感。

ChokStick: where does your inspiration and creativity come from?

Sorga: My inspiration comes from nature, street art, the fashion world, the Art world, and people.

ChokStick: 关于灵感来源?

Sorga: 我的灵感来源于大自然与街道艺术,这个到处充斥着时尚与艺术元素的世界,还有这个世界上熙熙攘攘各式各样的人群,无不给我提供了创作的灵感。


ChokStick: I know you’ve been doing design for some time, is there any moment you feel that you are the happiest person in the world? What makes you believe that you are going to keep doing this?

Sorga: When I get into the zone (when I’m designing) is the most satisfying (happiest) place. Doing some off the wall designs and not always conforming to the main stream. Thinking outside the box is essential in the design world. The truth is that the response I get from putting my work out there is really what keeps me going , peoples amazing response to my work.

ChokStick: 关于创作的快乐?

Sorga: 但我开始进入创作的模式,走入自己封闭的小世界,就是我最幸福的时刻。我并不喜欢随波逐流,不喜欢被一些奇怪的条条框框所限制,所以我很喜欢做一些非主流的设计(我是一个39岁的非主流骚年)。在现实生活中,所有关于我的作品的回馈,都是我前进的动力,我也希望能得到人们的赞赏。

ChokStick: Life is always ups and downs. Have you ever thought of giving it up? how was the worst moment?

Sorga: We Moved from London to Bristol when my son was born, this was a difficult time for me. lots of life pressures, but I will never give up.

ChokStick: 关于品牌历程的起伏?

Sorga: 要说人生目前为止最大的挑战,应该算是儿子的出生吧。有了小孩子之后,我们从伦敦搬迁到布里斯托,我感受到了来自很多方面的压力。但是,我还是会坚持去做自己喜欢并且认为是对的事情。

ChokStick: What advice would you give to a young person just starting out?

Sorga: If you truly believe in your creations and what you love doing, keep doing it, day and night, at the bus stop, on the toilet seat. That energy feels good and makes others feel good too. Keep doing it until you can do it for a living. This way you get paid to do what you love.

ChokStick: 关于给新手作人的建议?

Sorga: 如果你对自己的创作有自信,并且你是乐在其中的,那么,不要放弃,坚持做下去,无论是白天或是黑昼,不论你是在公车上,还是在马桶上。那样的热情与韧劲会让你感受到正能量,也能给周围的人带去正能量。坚持做下去吧骚年,很快你就能靠你的爱好养活自己了!
