This project was a case of me wanting a product that didn’t exist. I’ve been daydreaming of an Oregon flag tote bag for years, and when I finally decided to make it a reality, I thought other people might like them too.
The state of Oregon boasts the only two-sided flag in the U.S. The front bears the state seal and the back is arguably the cutest flag image ever: a beaver, which is our state animal.
I simplified the imagery just a little, then my friend screen-printed the totes for me. Just like the flag, one side shows the state seal and the text, “State of Oregon, 1859,” and the reverse side is graced with a beaver on a log.
