The love of LEGO bricks has inspired many to design some pretty cool things including kitchen caddies, a wedding dress, and even a functioning prosthetic leg. We thought we’d seen it all until we came across these fashion accessories from Poland-based company Agabag.
Since 2009, Agabag has been handcrafting handbags, jewelry and other accessories fashioned out of original LEGO bricks. The entire collection is pretty awesome, but the handbags, oh the handbags!
Our favorite is the clutch bag. The designs range from simple solid colors to a variety of multi-colored bold patterns, and some are even adorned with 24k gold details. Each one features a satin lining with a small credit card sized pocket. There are plenty of patterns and colors to choose from, but you can also customize your very own.
To create the bags, new, unused shiny bricks are connected to each other and are sewn firmly in place. According to the designer the connection is “very strong but flexible, so the whole clutch is exactly as stiff as it should be, and no brick will fall off. It is very elegant, and does not seem at all like a toy handbag.”
The clutch style bags are available in two sizes, standard (23 x 10.5 x 2cm) and oversize (30 x 15 x 2 cm), and are priced starting at $180 going up to over $300 depending on the intricacy of the design.
Our problem? We want them all!
