San Francisco-based firm Yield Design has designed this simple and ingenious tote to serve as a multifunctional everyday carry-all, grocery tote, lunch bag, and more. The Yield Picnic bag is defined by one continuous, heavy-duty zipper that acts as the strap, and the bag can be unzipped and completely unfolded for use as a handy picnic blanket. In the hope of encouraging people to pack up their lunch, get outside and refresh, Yield has begun production of their responsibly-made bags and has embarked on a kickstarter campaign to raise funds.
