Summer holiday 1989 tote bag by Hanna Melin

1989 bag

For a new tote that's steeped in nostalgia look no further than Hanna Melin's summer 1989 bag. It's covered with all sorts of drawings that capture her memories of that year when, judging from her biography, she was just eleven. 

Although 1989 seems relatively recent in my head, once you start looking at some of the clunky old technologies illustrated – the phones, typewriter and headphones – you realise just how much has changed in the world since then. Hanna's 'Play a Song for Me' bag was covered in cassette tapes and that motif is also picked up here with the wooden badge that comes with each bag. 

The bag costs £12 from the Hidden Art Shop
