Le Bis, The creative & sustainable bag


Where did the idea come from ? Who are the project holders ?

The idea came from the desire to do a handcrafted object that raises awareness on paper waste and promoted upcycling. I wanted to create an object that can be declined in different facetts and be exported, to promote the short-circuit by reusing (and reducing) its own waste through creation of unique objects.

What do they do ? What’s the project about ?

Le BIS is a creative object which highlights the gesture of recycling. Le BIS is a bag made of recycled newspapers, a promotional tool and a communication medium. Coming in three versions, the cheapest one is the SOS bag, with no handles. The second version is a shopping bag, with reinforced handles for carrying heavy products. The third one is a fashionable product, designed for trendsetters or people that want to express their personality.

Why did they create it ? What kind of impact (social, artistic, innovative,) does the project have?

Le BIS uses and enhances a raw material present on the territory, its manufacture highlights local know-how, which can radiate widely. BIS is a reproducible object but its mass production has not yet been valued. This is the ambition of this project, to make common and essential a recycled object made locally.

How does the SMATH Project help them? What are the next steps?

The SMATH support allows me to clarify my needs, the exchanges enrich my thinking and my progress. It allows me to go faster and be more efficient.
