Acknowledging that everyone is getting a little fed up with the "I am not a plastic bag" phenomenon, we still couldn't ignore these great looking carrier bags. Twentytwentyone, a furniture and design store, has commissioned forty world-renowned furniture and product designers from Finland, Sweden, Germany, France, Japan, Switzerland, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, Norway and the UK to come up with designs for Fairtrade cotton organic carrier bags. Those participating include El Ultimo Grito, Ella Doran, Jasper Morrison, Lucienne Day, Matthew Hilton, Michael Marriott, and Tord Boonjte.
The bags will be on display for a week, as part of London Design Festival and then be auctioned off. The only criterion for their creation was that the design "reflect their philosophy towards design and make a consideration towards responsible design." The proceeds will go to the Fairtrade Foundation. :: twentytwentyone Via :: Hippyshopper
