The Paperbag collection utilises unused billboard posters that have been sewn together.
Every time it is a surprise to see what design there is on the bag.
The Paperbox is a rectangular box made of unused billboard posters ideal for storing newspapers.
Goods has transformed these sovereigns of the roadways into lusciously thick vessels that can be used for almost anything.
The bags are folded double-thick and sewn with rough thread.
Billboard paper is a strong, durable, semi-impermeable material which is especially difficult to recycle due to its high ink content. But Jos van de Meulen found that unused billboard posters from test-prints can gain functionality by re-thinking its form and taking advantage of its properties.
The outcome is this colourful and surprisingly sturdy paper bag that can be used at the office, home or bedroom as a laundry basket.
Exclusivity of this product is twofold; no two paper bags equals in pattern, and it was designated by Time magazine one of the Best Design of 1996
