Gillian Kyle Creamola Foam bag


If you are Scottish and of a certain age, you are likely to recognise the design Gillian Kyle has used on her new bag, featuring the packaging for the Creamola Foam drink. 

For those less in the know, Creamola foam was a soft drink manufactured, as it says on the bag, in the form of soluble crystals. It was made in Glasgow and sold from the fifties until 1998 when Nestlé ceased production of the drink. If you're eager to try some, there's apparently now an independent company who manufacture a similar drink but until you track them down, this bag is a tasty substitute. The charming packaging of the crystals has been foil printed in fuchsia onto a plain cotton tote. 

If you've got a sweet tooth for all things Scottish, Kyle was the artist behind the Tunnock's Tea Cake tote bag we featured a little while back.

You can get the back for £17.50.
