This simple and cheap limited-edition tote bag was designed in collaboration with We Are What We Do (now Shift), a global social change movement whose mission for this project was 'to persuade people it’s cool not to use plastic bags'. Launched in 2007, the bags were primarily sold in Sainsbury’s supermarkets for £5 each. V&A, Room 40, Bags: Inside Out (12/2020)
