  • Naoto Fukasawa Siwa Paper Square Tote Bag
    More info
    "Paper Tote Bag" — @sharmarie
     
    An innovative combination of traditional craft and contemporary design, Naoto Fukasawa has partnered with Onao, one of Japan's oldest paper manufacturers for the Siwa collection of bags and accessories. Versatile and sturdy, the Square Tote Bag efficiently carries everything from the market to home or can be used as a minimal everyday tote bag. The spacious bag with simple open interior provides a spot for everyday items. Made from wood pulp and polyolefin using traditional Japanese paper manufacturing techniques, the unique paper is soft and flexible while at the same time extremely strong and water resistant. Siwa, pronounced 'shiwa,' means wrinkle in Japanese and references the natural creasing in the paper after they have been produced. The paper takes on the texture of worn-in leather and, as the products are used, the material begins to further soften and takes on a unique patina.

  • Rosenthal Paperbag vase 14 cm, white
    SOLD OUT: More info
    "Rosenthal Paper Bag Vase" — @sharmarie
     
    In 2011 the Studio Line Collection by Rosenthal celebrates its 50th anniversary and in honour of this important occasion, an anniversary edition of the Paperbag vase has been made. Tapio Wirkkala designed the Paperbag porcelain vase for Rosenthal in 1977 and today the Paperbag is one of the best selling articles of Rosenthal. Wirkkala’s design of the Paperbag vase reflects his artistic gaze to the world, to find the poetry of everyday life. It also represents his humorous contribution to the 1960s Pop Art movement. Wirkkala’s crumbled Paperbag is a gorgeous eyecatcher which displays a cunning use of subject and material. The vase is unique in that it captures the fragile creases of a paper bag in a sturdier material, so its transient beauty can be enjoyed every day. Display it on its own, or use it to showcase a beautiful selection of flowers; no matter how you use it, it will surely look beautiful. Manufacturer: Rosenthal. Design: Tapio Wirkkala. Size: 14 cm. Material: Porcelain. Color: White.

  • Does Hollywood Still Have a Brown Paper Bag Test?
    More info
    "Turn your Paper Bag into a fashionable outfit." — @sharmarie
     
    (by Jada F. Smith | The Root) - I’ve been accused a time or two of being a little too color-struck, reading too deeply into decisions that could have been made based on pure happenstance. Yes, I rooted for the Jiggaboos in Spike Lee’s School Daze, and sure, I happen to find Idris Elba a helluva lot more attractive than Chris Brown, but I am no colorist. I wish, however, that I could say the same for Hollywood executives who cast black movies. The new movie Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire sheds some much needed light on socioeconomic issues that haven’t changed much since the 1996 release of Sapphire’s book, Push. But the film’s casting also sheds light on how little color issues have changed since the Jiggaboos and the Wannabes first had it out in Madame Re-Re’s Hair Salon a few decades ago. Call it overanalyzing, but is it a coincidence that Precious’ dark-skinned mother is physically and verbally abusive, her dark-skinned father is a drug addict who rapes her, and the main character herself is a dark-skinned 16-year-old mother of two? Meanwhile, the teacher, social worker and nurse who uplift and bring positivity into her life are all light-skinned. Black entertainment has made little progress in the last century when it comes to colorism. Both dark- and light-skinned blacks continue to be cast in roles that perpetuate stereotypes within our own community. Light-skinned people are good; dark-skinned people are bad. Light-skinned people live comfortably; dark-skinned people live in the projects. Don’t believe that colorism is still seeping into our psyches? Read Monique Fields’ piece about her 4-year-old daughter who told her, “Brown people drive old cars.” CONTINUE READING
