Dutch designer Ilvy Jacobs has just begun making a name for herself in the world of product design. After graduating last summer, Jacobs has been busy studying and creating a way to make bags sustainable yet stylish, so that users can get the most out of them.

Jacobs' latest project is her Modern Paper Bag series, which takes conventional brown paper lunch bags and turns them into beautiful artworks that also last quite longer than the traditional brown paper bag.

Ilvy Jacobs noticed that people tend to use brown paper bags once or twice, or throw out, because they are often unsightly. This stellar project aims to change that perception. And, for only $20, you can own one of these crafty bags.
