Big Old Bags

Finally! Big, tough, bags. Washable, simple and fantastically practical.

The Bags

Crinkly, un-pretty but seriously useful.

Will you take them to a fancy restaurant? Unlikely. Will you rustle them around in a cinema? Hopefully not. But can you fit ALL the things in, hose them off and fold them into a tiny parcel? Yes, yes you can.



Really big, repurposed bags. Handmade, imperfect but bloody practical. Hose them, squish them, run them over... no dramas - they'll be fine.
