We have approached important international furniture and product designers to customise or create a design directly onto twentytwentyone's cotton tote shopping bag. The only consideration being that their design reflects their philosophy towards design and makes a consideration towards responsible design.
The entire exhibition will be available to view online from 19 September 2007.
It will also be on display at the:
twentytwentyone showroom from the 19 - 25 September from 10am - 5pm. (12pm - 5 pm on Sunday 23 September).

twentytwentyone wanted to move away from using polythene shop-bags and have sourced a manufacturer to produce Fairtrade and organic certified cotton bag. We consider the bags to be a perfect blank canvas and envisaged a series of commissioned designs to reflect the activities of twentytwentyone. The idea for an auction to raise money for charity was borne out of this concept.
