Turning Japan's dab hand for product design innovation to more disaster-inspired novelty, this foldable re-usable shopping bag doubles up as head protection in the event of an emergency. Yes, it sounds bizarre and it is a little, but we just love this! After the 2011 Tohoku disaster, Storia developed the Grappa, which can be folded down so it's no bigger than an umbrella, meaning you can pop it into your handbag when you go out shopping.
Help keep the planet clean and green by then using the Grappa as an eco bag to carry your purchases home. Or, if you are caught in an earthquake while out and about, just open it up and put it on your head to provide some protection from falling objects. The bottom of the bag is made of helmet-style hardened plastic so that it can double effectively as an earthquake hood.
Available in two designs (tote or drawstring bag) and in a suits-all black color, with these bag-helmets you will feel ready for whatever catastrophes the world might throw at you!
