OffCuts Bag no 1 is the perfect tote bag for shopping and a variety of other daily uses. Finished with a brass push button, the shopper has a small pocket inside for your keys, phone or wallet.

Bag no 1 is part of Form & Refine’s OffCuts collection featuring products made of leftover materials from the wood and textile industry: it is crafted from leftover fabric and leather from premium companies Kvadrat and Sorensen Leather. With the OffCuts collection, Form & Refine aim to show respect and appreciation to high-quality materials and prevent them from going to waste.

OffCuts bags are handmade in collaboration with the Hans Knudsen Institute in Copenhagen. The institute’s social workshop helps create work fo those who, for various reasons, have faced difficulties in the job market. Each bag is produced in a limited edition of 150 pieces and, online, they are only available at Finnish Design Shop.
