The blue $1 IKEA FRAKTA carrier bag is an iconic part of the Swedish furniture store's line-up. It's a Good Bag, and one of the most recognisable things in the world. Even Balenciaga made one (for $3000). As part of a new set of Scandy furniture, the FRAKTA has been redesigned in a few different colours.
Those $1 IKEA plastic bags at the checkout are near indestructible and great for just about anything, especially if it's heavy or otherwise awkward, but we never thought we'd see a full backpack made from them.
