Ah! When I saw this online, I knew I wanted it. Its an Anya Hindmarch bag. Anya Hindmarch was made famous for personalising her bags. You can have your photo or your kids photos or any personal photos on your own bag which makes it one of a kind.
Anyway, the “I’m not a Plastic Bag” bag is a canvas shopping tote. Its meant to be an enviromentally friendly creation, to reduce the use of plastic bags. I suppose you could say that I could just buy one of those green bags that are being offered at some supermarkets, but hey! Those aren’t Anya Hindmarch bags! 🙂
This one actually looks good carried outside of the grocery store and you could even take it on shopping trips or for a casual day out. Its that sort of bag. I want it! Even the celebs love it.
It was launched on June 20 in the USA and is expected to be taken worldwide by July. I checked the Anya Hindmarch website and it said that the one launched in our Malaysian stores will be white with grey lettering. I think the brown lettering one looks better, but its going over $200 on ebay!
It retails for $15 and GBP7.50 (RM52) in the USA and England respectively and I hope they don’t tack on some crazy mark up when they bring it in here to Malaysia. After all, its for a good cause. Saving the environment is always a good cause.
Anya Hindmarch stores in Malaysia are in 1 Utama U Parkson (TEl: : + 603 77242197) and KLCC (+ 603 23820877). I’ll update if I get any further news on its release and its price.
UPDATE: Its launching in Malaysia at KLCC on 6 July 2007. It will retail for RM55 and is limited.

Isn’t it being sold at Sainsbury(UK) for 5quids? Heard the line started at 6am and went round the block.
Knowing the fact that it is meant as a grocery bag, where ppl cart fruits, milk, juice and vegetable…and is probably used as what it is meant for, somehow, the idea of flaunting it as a shopping bag here in Malaysia seems odd.
I mean, you dont see people carrying the bright orange Sainsbury’s grocery bag around as a shopping bag do you? Kept purely for grocery purposes.
Hearsay news is that it has been fully booked at KLCC.
PB says: Yep it is fully booked and subject to queue. Not sure if I’m going to. And true, its a grocery bag, but hey, its cuter than the ones we get here 🙂

I m dying to get my hands on one of these bags!!
PB says: Ditto!
Hi PB, I like this new look leh, easier to read. i fell in love with this bag when I first saw it, and it’s probably the only AH bag I could ever afford lol. 6 July launched in M’sia, I wonder if we can reserve it, do you know?
PB says: Thanks! I like it too! And yup its the AH bag i can afford. We can’t reserve. The SA said to go and queue *rolls eyes*
I read about the bag too and have been pestering friends to get one for me =) No luck though =( I do question the limited numbers available if it’s meant to cut down on the use of plastic bags – they should make & sell enough to go around, right?
Btw, I got some stuff from Dubai duty-free and would love to know what you think of them!
PB says: If they make too many it becomes less desirable hehee… but I agree with you 🙂 I let you know my thoughts on your site
anya hindmarch is such a fat liar!
Last month i aseked for reservation, they said NO, u have to que up. So i Q’ed for the bag. And as the result, i didnt get one. I came as early as 6am in the morning! hoping that i cud get that bag. And i found out that they, keep for the one who has reserved! Totally unfair!!!!!!!!!!
PB says: OMG that is truly unfair! I actually got the same answer so I thought it was first come first served LOL…
i actually pre-ordered for my bag waaaaay back in May, so i got mine 🙂
i heard that my boss’s wife only pre-ordered it the day before, and they did reserve for her. word has it that she pulled some strings to get it though. *shrugs*
PB says: Lucky you! 🙂 Wish I had a string to pull lol!
