Malaysian turns iconic Gardenia and Hup Seng packaging into bags and they’re looking great

How much do you love your local bread and crackers?

If you’re Malaysian, a local fashion designer has been upcycling the country’s popular breakfast (and shall we say snacking) food packaging into attention grabbing bags.

Here’s what happens when food meets fashion.

Wan’s Handmade recently showcased several images featuring the iconic packaging of the Gardenia bread and Hup Seng Cream Crackers into useful bags that you can use whenever you go out.

The bags themselves come in several styles to serve the fashion taste buds of many. There are vintage-looking clutches, fanny packs, and messenger bags.

Followers of the Johor based designer who regularly creates costumes, dolls, and bags immediately began receiving interests in the form of comments when she had posted the images of the Hup Seng Cream Crackers handbag.

She also turned Massimo bread wrappers into bags as well.

According to Wan’s Instagram page, all of these bags are part of the Plastic Reborn Project, an initiative to recycle plastic bags into useful items.

If you’re interested, these bags are sold between US$18.50 and above. They can be purchased here.
