The Omni Bag by Kumeko, a Prague-based design studio, is a shape-shifting tote that could save people a lot of time and hassle when it comes to maintaining more static and less sturdy alternatives. Not to mention that, as Fast Co. Design points out, companies who produce reusable totes are now inundating the market with unattractive options such as solid hues, pattern, catchphrases and let's not forget about all the different materials.

Keeping things simple, the Omni Bag by Kumeko is strikingly architectural. The sharp features is due to its main influence: origami. Designer Alexandra Fefelova says, “A big part of the Kumeko ethos is the focus on preserving old-fashioned handcrafting techniques." Available in four sizes, the Omni Bag serves many purposes.
