Based on the exhibition TRADING STYLE six designers were invited to develop new limited editions and thereby continue the dialogue with objects from the collection of Weltkulturen Museum.

This edition of bags was created in a workshop with the Berlin Designer collective NEW TENDENCY in cooperation with students of the Offenbach University of Art and Design. Each bag has been handmade out of various burlap and cotton tote bags and is unique.

NEW TENDENCY is an interdisciplinary company devoted to conceptual furniture, fashion and graphic design. It evolved from a group exhibition MY BAUHAUS IS BETTER THAN YOURS in 2009 in Milan and has since then shown its work in Beirut, Art Contemporary Berlin, Leipzig, MiArt Milan in collaboration with MOUSSE Magazine, Kunstverein München, Barbican Art Gallery London, Nouveau Musée National de Monaco, VitraHaus Weil am Rhein and Weimar. NEW TENDENCY was recently nominated for the GERMAN DESIGN NEWCOMER AWARD 2013.

Further limited editions include productions by Saskia Diez, uslu airlines and Airbag.
