LET’S DESIGN PACKABLE BAGS TOGETHER

Packable bags are convenient items that compress to something very small. They come in a variety of styles and sizes. You can take them with you everywhere to be used in an emergency. With this community design project, we’d like to create a line of packable bags that you’d like to use everyday, not just when you’re in a pinch.
