Apple's Stunner: The New Paper Bag

Unannounced at the recent keynote event: the all-new, all-white (except the handles) Apple Shopping Bag. This technological marvel is created with at least 60% post-consumer paper, specifically "solid bleached sulfate paper." Even the carrying ropes are "formed entirely of paper fiber yarn knitted in an 8-stitch circular knit pattern." You can read about the entire magnificent creation in the 5,900 word patent application. Click on the image for a larger view of this beautifully crafted marvel of mall engineering.

Apple's elegant paper shopping bag offers the next level in consumer engineering, balancing the understated gray Apple logo with the perfect white paper and contrasting gray paper fiber yarn handles.
