This is a first edition, custom baguette bag for L’Appartement 4F. Each bag is designed, cut, and sewn by Carly Dean in Switzerland. A batch of four bags is constructed from exactly one meter of fabric without producing any scraps, making the collection 100% zero waste. The fabric is a sustainable, Oeko-Tex certified European laundered linen, produced in small batches in a mill run on green energy.
Wrapper is inspired by the twisted plastic wrapper surrounding traditional hard candies. The end of the bag is gathered and smocked by hand, using a technique often reserved for sleeves and collars.
Icing is inspired by the piping bag used to apply icing onto pastries. Its tapered end is designed to snugly fit the tapered end of the baguette.
Corset uses hand-applied grommets and Japanese wool thread to reference a corset. The design allows for the bag to expand at the middle to accommodate the baguette’s widest part.
Window is a playful and reusable version of the generic bakery bag made from parchment paper with a plastic-covered window. It’s for showing off your baguette, while keeping it safe.
