Ai Weiwei – limited edition Papercut scarves and Bags

Ai Weiwei papercut Scarves & Bags - 2020

Ai Weiwei - Paper cut Bags and Scarves

Ai’s design for these bags and scarves are based on his Papercut Portfolio (sold out), reflecting on his work from the 1990s, when he returned to Beijing after a decade-long stay in New York and found his own artistic identity.

Coupling impeccable crafting and beautiful storytelling, Ai Weiwei’s scarves are wearable works of art that look as well luxuriously draped over your outfit as hanging in a frame. They are made made of high-quality Chinese twill silk, a material renowned for its particularly fine texture, woven and screen-printed by hand, and finished with hand-rolled edges.

The Bags are art objects which can be framed in the supplied passepartout  and also they are fully functional as bag, thanks to a transparent inner pocket. Ai Weiwei’s filigree laser-cut design and the transparent inlay are made of robust PVC plastic.
