Using salvaged plastic bags, the aNYbag offers a new beginning to the dreaded plastic bag. The aNYbag is created by weaving 95 repurposed and upcycled plastic bags that were on their way to pollute our landfills and waterways. Since its introduction to the US market in 1979 there has been an outbreak, with Americans currently using over 100 billion plastic bags a year. As monumental of a problem caused the aNYbag transforms our waste to a one of a kind wearable artifact. Made inYork City, by New Yorkers, using New York City Excess. *No plastic bags were harmed or discriminated against in the process of hand weaving an aNYbag.
