Picnic Backpack

Only one post today as it’s a bank holiday here in the UK… and seeing that everyone has abandoned the city streets in favor of the green grasses of parks and holiday homes, it’s only appropriate that this picnic tote gets the favored spotlight. Fully equipped and lightweight, you’ll be able to carry food and tools for four people all in one ergonomic backpack. Beats the pants off of an awkward basket, particularly if you’re traveling farther than your backyard.

Corkscrew, cutting board, cheese knife, salt and pepper shakers, acrylic wine glasses, melamine plates, stainless steel flatware, cotton napkins, large picnic blanket, detachable wine holder and insulated cooler compartment all included.

Baggu Duck Bag

Utilitarian bags are always handy to have around. Whether you use this one for your everyday needs or just for market trips, the heavy weight 16oz canvas will hold up to the task at hand. Best of all, at $20, you could afford to get a few.

16″h x 10″w x 5.5″d
16oz recycled cotton canvas.

Update: The BAGGU website looks like it’s a little messed up at the moment, but you can try emailing them at info(at)baggu.com or calling them at 800 605 0759 for a list of retailers. I found several at Fabrica Verde but let me know if there are others out there. 02/06/12.

If you need a heavy duty bag, check out this carbon fiber bag. It’s super light (under 3 lbs) but very sturdy, and, as an extra plus has that undercover/cool look about it. The briefcase (below) is also worth considering.

Krv Kurva La.Ga Bags

I recently came across these awesome bags at the Moma Design Store in New York, but for some reason they’re not available at their online store. Luckily you can buy them directly from the designer. Anyways, the La.Ga is a Tyvek bag available in various custom prints. Tyvek feels like paper but is waterproof, tear-resistant, and because it’s plastic, recycleable. The large size of the bag and colourful graphics certainly make a bold statement. Be sure to check out their store to see the other styles.

Recycled Milk Carton Tote

MoMA Store’s new Destination Portugal collection has a quite a few gems, one of which is this tote made from recycled Portuguese milk cartons. (The silver finish comes from the milk containers’ interiors, just in case you were wondering.)

Zero Waste Bag

Add another reusable tote to your must-have list: this lightweight bag is made from a single sheet of #2 plastic and, just like the Ty Shower Curtain, you can write/draw on it as you wish. So, make notes, keep a travel log, or just keep it plain white (as I plan to do, at least at first). It’s machine washable and can be recycled when it has worn out.

Bergkamp Double Tote

Two are better than one… at least in this case. There’s a ton of totes available these days, but this is the first I’ve seen doubled up so that you can organize your items. The canvas ‘bridge’ that conects the two totes can be used to hold jackets or yoga mats or whatever other larger items you have. I’d say it might be an easy DIY project as well, if you’ve got two of the same sized totes and an aversion to buying more. If you’d rather just plonk down the cash for this one, it’s available in natural, black, and orange.

Designer: Stephen Wong
13″w x 15″h x 10″
Handmade in NYC.

If you can’t afford (or find) Cristian Zuzunaga’s artwork, maybe this colourful tote bag will give you enough of a fix. If you’re not familiar with his work, take a look at his site (you’ve probably seen the results of his collaborations with Moroso and Ligne Roset).

KimKim Papr Hand Bag

KimKim’s leather ‘paper’ bag joins the club of look-a-likes (see MyPaperBag) as well as offering a few smaller sized options.

By staying close to the original designs, inspiration, and basic construction methods, we pay homage to the honesty in ordinary products. At first glance, the identical proportions and symmetry more than elude to everyday products. The result is not homespun or designer kitsch, but a discerning elegance that is modest, yet exceptional. Our products are not used for praise or display, but adheres to a certain virtuosity which contemporary fashion lacks. Accordingly, our products transcend the elements of fashion by outclassing the test of facetious trends.
