world's fair tote bagWorld's Fair Tote Bag


A kerchief in the archives of the New York Historical Society inspired this retro-chic design. The design features exhibits from the 1939 New York World's Fair, such as the Trylon and Perisphere, the Textile Building, the Aviation Building, and the Railroad Building. This 1939 World Fair was the first to focus on the future, and it encouraged all visitors to explore 'the world of tomorrow'. The fair was one of the six World Fairs featured in the National Building Museum's exhibit 'Designing Tomorrow: America’s World’s Fairs of the 1930s'.
