Wear Your Heart On Your Sleeves
It has become a trend of using reusable shopping bags in various major retail stores. Clothing store, Urban Outfitters, gives their shoppers reusable shopping bags made from non-woven polypropylene. Their strong and waterproof design makes them ideal for grocery shopping and many other purposes. Being the coffee lovers that we are, designer Janice Fong and I were inspired by the concept of reusability and repurposing, and transformed these reusable bags into coffee sleeves that could play a small part in helping the environment while also fulfilling a helpful role in peoples' daily routine.
The Urban Outfitters shopping bags come in different patterns and colors. By combining and sewing them together with colorful threads and decorative buttons, Janice Fong and I created three series of handmade coffee sleeves:
with an extra touch of buttons
Yin & Yang
reversible coffee sleeves
single sided coffee sleeves
