Bennington alum and Alaska native Rebecca Grabman contributed this series of reusable cloth bags (suitable for both sexes) made from recycled clothes and materials. The series includes magnet-clasp bags, handles of varying lengths, and bags with buttonhole pockets. The combination of both wide and thin plaid lines forms an eye-catching clash balanced by the solid handle and bottom, thus putting the typical grocery-store cloth bag to shame. More photos below:

Rebecca Grabman works and teaches awesome stuff at the Children's Museum of Pittsburgh. Her website, PineappleGirl.net, features pics and videos of her many, many fashion and experience-interaction projects, including a computer-interactive obstacle course, a purse that records and plays back audio conversations, and a machine that voices user-generated propaganda. She also worked on the combination tap dance/light show featured below. I regret that we never became better friends in college.
