the museum of shopping bags


"From its origins as a plain fiber sack, the humble shopping bag emerged as a sophisticated merchandising tool." The Museum of Bags.

The Museum of Bags is an actual museum, located in McLean, Virginia, dedicated to showcasing the history of this item as an icon of society and culture. You can browse a few items in their collection on their website or make sure to make a visit if you happen to be passing through McLean sometime.

It's a celebration of an everyday item in culture that is often overlooked as such or an example of design.
