Got it in the Bag

Sanborn, Brian C. Howard
Move over Prada, there's a new bag in town. The Zipsack by Wrapsacks
($11.95) is small enough to fit in your pocket and large enough
to carry all of your groceries. Made of hand-dyed cotton in
a range of bright colors, these bags zip up neatly into small
pouches that would fit easily into a purse or glove compartment.
When unzipped, they are approximately the size of a grocery
bag with a small pocket sewn into the top for valuables. Aside
from their convenience, durability and good looks, these bags
can also help reduce the number of flimsy plastic sacks that
end up dogging your closets and piling up in landfills. Wrapsacks
also offers reusable fabric gift bags in many colors and styles.

While the licensed apparel industry is solid going into fall
2005, the accessories segment is really taking off. "Other
businesses [such as] accessories have all started to get much
better distribution because we are now able to offer complete
programs to retailers," said Natasha Fishman, director
of business development for Sesame Workshop. Driven by retailers'
positive reception to lifestyle brands and cross merchandising,
the demand for non-apparel items has increased dramatically.
