Shoppingbag Oak + Cleese
This New Shoppingbag is part of the “1975” collection, in which Susan Bijl celebrates her year of birth.
“…It celebrates how her parents lived in a typical new Vinex district, with a Volvo car as their transport of choice. How interiors made of oak were everywhere, and orange was dominant in design. How John Cleese lightened up the lives with Monthy Python and Fawlty Towers, while Jaws gave thrills and chills in the cinemas. How Frank Zappa bloomed with his twisted music and Pink Floyd released their classic ‘Wish You Were Here’.” (Susan Bijl)
That same plastic bag, was Susan Bijl’s inspiration to start (over 10 years ago) with her first collection of her nylon shopping bag. You could even call it a tribute. Her bag is made from 100% ripstop nylon, a textile that is used for manufacturing kites. It is water repellent, but not suitable for a swim.
Unlike the totebag, Susan’s bag is as light as a feather, easy to fold and looks awesome! Not only is it mega strong, but with its modern design, signature flash and unlimited possible colour variations, makes you want to collect them all!
