Rather than using their usual antics in cutting up truck tarps and refashioning them into bags and wallets, Switzerland’s Freitag had decided to cut up art instead to create some limited edition art bags for August. These tote bags based on the brand’s F52 Miami Vice Shopping Bag are created from exhibition banners found in contemporary art museums around the world. The list includes Tate Modern London, Mori Art Museum Tokyo, Palazzo Grassi Venice and Museum of Contemporary Art Los Angeles. Motifs from sculptures, Picasso and Japanese art make these bags a nice cross between commerce and art. As these bags are limited and sold on a strictly first come first serve basis with one model releasing per week for the month of August, those who wants art on their bags should be fast and check out the release schedule below to purchase online.
