Year of Craft 2011 flags upcycled into bags

27 September 2012

Our Year of Craft 2011 flags that were on display last year on the quays in Dublin have been upcyled and repurposed by craft enterprise Mamukko Bags.

The flags have been used as lining in some of their three new designs: 'Titanic 2.0', 'Titanic mini' and 'Cocktail party'. The rope to adjust the sides of the bag were also upcycled from the Year of Craft 2011 flag. 

Attila Magyar from Mamukko Bags said "All our bags are unique and original designs and the upcycled flags add an extra feature and story to our products and people love to listen to our stories and now the Crafts Council of Ireland is part of them".
