Pili Bundle Bags

The concept behind the "Pili包袱皮" series draws from the nostalgia of childhood. Do you recall the anticipation and excitement when your grandmother arrived from afar with a cloth bundle? These bundles often contained candies and handmade trinkets, bringing joy to the hearts of children. "Pili包袱皮" also has roots in ancient China's daily life: it served as a means for merchants to carry goods through the bustling
streets, for wanderers to pack their belongings as they roamed, and for travelers to transport their essentials.

The fusion of cherished memories and environmental concerns gave rise to the "Pili包袱皮." Throughout history, the word "包 pack”in the Chinese context has been both a noun and a verb. It represents a bag and symbolizes a process. The "Pili包袱皮" series seeks to uphold and continue Eastern culture, refining its
patterns and packaging for modern life and everyday use, rejuvenating this unique concept of Easter aesthetics in contemporary surroundings.
