Placemat, lunch bag, water bottle carrier, and smartphone holder in one, Eco Bag Aesthetics uses an embedded grid system and magnets of different strengths in its fabric that allows the bag to adapt to its users’ needs. Composed of 80% cotton and 20% linen, waterproof glue, and foam pads, the main material of the bag is a pleasing mix of contrasts – soft but sturdy, lightweight, yet durable.
Designed to be folded into two sizes, the bag can carry up to 5kg and can easily accommodate objects of different dimensions. However, it can also be opened up to serve as an impromptu placemat, letting users eat on the go in style. With vegetable tanned leather handles and a pleasing neutral beige, this bag is a stylish rendition of the boring lunch bag.
