Plastic Bag Style: Lauren DiCioccio's Reusable Totes

Plastic Bag Style: Lauren DiCioccio's Reusable Totes

With San Francisco's new plastic bag ordinance making its way to retail stores on October 1 and to restaurants and bakeries next January 1, that ubiquitous white bag gleaming with its "Thank you" and "Have a nice day" slogans will soon be a thing of the past.

As a cheeky tribute to that all-American symbol of mass production and consumerism, San Francisco artist Lauren DiCioccio has recreated them in a collection of embroidered taffeta.

Her reusable totes are made in the Bay Area and are currently available at The Workshop Residence, a local artist collaborative. The totes range in price from $35 (for the standard white design we all know and love/hate) to $42 for the more luxurious totes in a palette of colorful chiffon.

To view and purchase the designs, visit The Workshop Residence.
