Inside Out by Constance Vale

It’s perfect for your next trip on a magic carpet, a Future Foam carpet pad and felt tote bag. 
This tote bag recasts the unseen underlay of architecture as a visible overlay. Both the hyper-functional role of the material -- carpet padding -- and the object -- tote bag -- are offset in their intersection. Use is undermined in order to privilege the aesthetic qualities of material and object alike. That which was designed to be hidden underneath floor coverings becomes an ornamental cladding, while the generic tool intended to carry objects becomes an object of display.
