The GOD 25th Anniversary Commemorative Tote (aka Chicken Bag) is a retro and fun canvas print small tote in a GOD original print.
Reminiscent of earlier Hong Kong days when people went to the wet market to buy live produce like chickens to take home, this tote brings together history and style.
Chicken not included :)
The inside of the bag has one large open pocket plus one zippered pocket and a pop ruby pink lining. The straps are a swirl of red, white and blue inspired by the string of the old chicken bags.
Story of the Chicken Bag:
Hong Kong people prefer fresh meat over frozen meat. Live poultry was freely available in the wet markets. The ability to kill a live chicken at home was still around with housewives and amahs.
These were the days before the arrival of supermarkets. A live chicken being carried on public transport was still a common sight. The means of carrying one is the brown paper bag. It was specifically shaped to fit a live chicken.
The colourful print on the bag signifies that it is also the perfect gift to someone’s home.
This is our re-interpretation of the classic paper chicken bag. It is made of cotton fabric but printed to simulate paper with classic designs.
We may have lost some traditions to modern convenience, but we hope to retain some memories of local customs.
