KEEP YOUR VINO SNUG AS A BUG
These days, there are many ways to help minimize your impact on the environment, from fuel-efficient cars to sustainable seafood. Now, wine lovers can help the cause even more with the Winepocket, which solves the issues of how to transport bottles safely and make the earth happy as well. Designer Josh Jakus, based in the San Francisco Bay area, designed the Winepocket to require the least amount of material and labor to produce it. The utilitarian pocket is made from local factory excess—a single strip of gray industrial fabric made of 85 percent wool and 15 percent mixed fibers. Wear and tear is no problem for the pocket because of its tough textile. A nifty circle on one side of the fold, where you insert the wine bottle, also doubles as a handle for carrying the protective bag. When not in use, the Winepocket folds flat for convenient storage. While it doesn’t flaunt any frills, the Winepocket’s appeal is in its cleverly efficient and no-nonsense style.
