When the Hoover Institution Library & Archives found itself with an excess of outdated exhibition banners, it was faced with a common problem: what to do with them? Rather than simply disposing of them, the Library & Archives decided to take a more creative approach. It approached us to turn the banners into unique tote bags to give to their staff. The result was a collection of eye-catching totes, each one featuring a different design from the Library & Archives’ past exhibitions. They were given a new life as stylish and sustainable accessories.
Not only do these tote bags provide a practical alternative to single-use plastic bags, they also allow staff members to represent their workplace in a fun way. And because they are made in the USA, they also promote local manufacturing and reduce the carbon footprint associated with shipping products from overseas.
The Hoover Institution Library & Archives is located at Stanford University in California. It was founded in 1919 by Herbert Hoover, who would go on to become the 31st President of the United States. With its eminent scholars and world-renowned Library & Archives, the Hoover Institution seeks to improve the human condition by advancing ideas that promote economic opportunity and prosperity, while securing and safeguarding peace for America and all mankind. The mission of the Hoover Institution Library & Archives is to collect, preserve, and make available the most important materials about global political, social, and economic change in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. It serves as a platform for a vibrant community of scholars and a broad public interested in the meaning and role of history.
