This roomy bag was designed with the sauna in mind, as it's perfect for toting and storing towels, pillows, toiletries, whisks and more. This makes it just as suited to picnics, beach days, library visits, weekend camping trips, or any occasion that calls for a bundle to bring. Made from organic cotton and linen, the bag is soft yet sturdy with thick shoulder straps. The white and grey threads are woven into Young Designer of the Year award winner Reeta Ek's print, which was designed for the National Museum of Finland in support of Hvitträsk. Hvitträsk was built at the start of the 20th century by famous Finnish architects Herman Gesellius, Armas Lindgren and Eliel Saarinen, and became the latter's home. It is now a museum and is known for its lovely English style garden, which inspired the name of Reeta Ek's Ruusu (Rose) pattern. This pattern extends into the interior in a reverse colorway, and a sewn tag on the front reads "Kansallismuseo National Museum Lapuan Kankurit Woven in Finland."
