Years ago, one of our Swedish customers—a local product designer—suggested we carry this bag in our shop. A staple in Swedish households, the Hinza bag was designed in the 1950s by one of the largest plastic manufactures in Scandinavia. As disposable plastic bags grew in popularity, the Hinza was discontinued. Reintroduced in 2006 by the same family that originally produced it, the Hinza bag is used for a multitude of purposes including grocery shopping, storage, picnics, and gardening. Durable, easy to clean and even recyclable, it is manufactured in Sweden using the original 1950s design.
