Bag size: 280mm wide x 300mm high when extended, and 280mm wide x 180mm high when folded over.

There are two types of fabrics for the cork & linen fold-over bag. The first fabric is cork fabric, also known as cork leather. It has a cork surface and the reverse is made of RPET-TC fabric. Cork fabric/leather comes from the bark of the cork oak tree and can thus be harvested repeatedly, as the bark re-grows easily without damaging the tree - which makes it a truly sustainable material. The cork materials are imported from Portugal. The production consists of gluing thin sheets of natural cork to various backings, the gluing process uses a water-based glue and is free of formaldehyde and azo which can cause environmental or health damage. RPET-TC is made of upcycled plastic bottles.

The second fabric is imitation linen fabric, which is also made from upcycled plastic bottles. This fabric is a two-layer type, with a linen-like surface and a flannel reverse. The two-layer design provides strength and a soft feel.

Designed in New Zealand by Jo Luping Design.
