Every since we bought on of Grain Design’s Tyvek shower curtain, we’ve been fans of Tyvek’s ability to crumple like fine fabric, while being incredibly durable (after a year, the shower curtain is going strong…and a black Tyvek Issey Miyake bag we’ve had for years has only gotten softer and better looking).
Always on the lookout for lightweight re-usable bags for hauling all the stuff we find for our projects (and dinners), we really like the looks of this Tyvek carryall from Milk Design. At 23″ x 21″ x 12″, it’s roomy and oddly chic with its leather handle…yet it can fold down easily to carry as a spare bag. And Tyvek is endlessly washable (we’ve found leather does just fine in a washing machine, but not the dryer). $35 + $5 shipping.
Milk Design also makes the tote out of green tarpaulin material. Both come in a smaller, boxier version.
A tool we’d use every day.
