Seattle designer Peter Bristol’s Clip Bag translates those ubiquitous binder clips you find in offices into a funny and useful accessory that could almost be elegant, if it weren’t so silly. It’s one of those form translations that makes me say, “Of course!” The bag is made out of wool felt and aluminum tubing, and appears to have two large snap closures.

    That’s hilarious, because in my office we have always called those binder clips “Barbie purses”.
