RTR specializes in custom bags, boxes, gift wrap and conceptual packaging. Beautiful bags like everyone’s favorite Desigual bag
the very cute reusable Bloomingdales Tote (Lord & Taylor also used RTR to do their reusable shopping bag as well)
He walked me through some of his work and materials he uses. he has created bags for not only the above stated companies but also American Express, Avon, Dolce & Gabbana, Glamour magazine, Details magazine, Hennessy, W Hotels, VH1, Time Warner, etc.
One particular bag that stood out was this stone shopping bag
Yes it has a photo of stones on it but it’s actually MADE FROM STONES. Believe or not, he told me any stone can be grounded down and used. the amazing thing is the bag was very smooth to the touch, no indication that it was literally made from stones.
But I do have favorite RTR Bags, one is this incredible duffle bag for the Project Trade Show (I know many a man who would love this)
and my ultimate fav – this Sephora Times Square Tote from the store’s opening event
