Switzerland’s Freitag, known for tranforming used trucking tarps into wallets and messenger bags, takes a break for picking through their dirty piles and re-focuses towards art exhibition banners. “In cooperation with the Tate Modern London, the Mori Art Museum Tokyo, Palazzo Grassi Venice and the Museum of Contemporary Art L.A., FREITAG presents a unique limited art edition. Swapping truck tarps for exhibition banners from these world-leading modern art galleries, FREITAG has produced one-off versions of its F52 Miami Vice shopping bag. Motifs from Picasso to Japanese contemporary art make these bags genuine rarities.”
If interested, be sure to visit the Freitag website often in August. Each week, they will launch a new collection of their art bags online. The problem is we at this time do not know the schedule for which exhibition bags will drop.
More bags from the Freitag Limited Art Edition after the jump.
