Right on the heels of this month’s Art Basel Miami, Art Strong bags are making their debut, offering a reusable solution for transporting artwork. Packaging artwork can be expensive and wasteful, with layers of bubble wrap and plastic being discarded once the painting has been transported to its new home. Offering a more eco-friendly alternative, Art Strong’s bubble envelopes make art transport and storage easy, and reusable.

The silver enveloped bags come in 15 different sizes, and will fit almost any size of work. The brainchild of Mary Nguyen and Emmanuel Fremin, the bags were born when the two art world partners were frustrated with the continuous task of unwrapping and rewrapping artwork- as well as the garbage it left behind.

The polytheylene bags are durable, infinitely reusable, and protect the enclosed painting with a double layer of bubbles. The envelope is then sealed and resealed with gripping Velcro, ensuring that the work is secure, and reinforced sewn edges keep even the heaviest pieces in place. The interior of the bags will also not snag or scratch on the enclosed painting’s texture or surface. They are intended to be used for one painting at a time, and will last several years.

The United States produced products also benefit Diakonos International, a charity that supports orphans and homeless children, as well as Girls Educational & Mentoring Service. Both organizations seek to empower children, and use art as a means to better their lives.

    My paintings are on paper measuring approximately 50″ x 45″; do you have oversized art bags for such a size?; if I insert a 4 foot x 8 foot sheet of foam core (cut down to size), will the art bag hold several works on paper?
    Can you send me a list of available sizes? Thanks….jp
