the picnic bag by rachel gant + andrew deming

‘the picnic bag’ by yield design studio

in the routine of planning for the gloomy days, grabbing an umbrella and an extra sweater, users tend to leave their house prepared for an unexpectedly nice day. developed by rachel gant and andrew deming of san francisco-based yield design studio, ‘the picnic bag’ presents a solution using high quality materials to ensure a picnic stays dry. constructed using nylon cordura, the product provides camping-grade, water-resistant protection, alongside an extra-durable #5 nylon zipper with leather details.

the picnic bag easily unzips whenever and wherever

three colors: marine, poppy, + slate

each yield picnic bag comes with branded leather details

one continuous zipper allows the bag to unzip + unfold quickly and easily

ready to go after a quick trip to the market

the yield picnic bag will be made responsibly in el paso, texas
