In Brief

Hälssen & Lyon's new collection features special teabags designed to look like fashionable purses

Teabags haven’t changed much on the design front since their inception, mainly because their function is more practical than it is aesthetic. However, Hamburg-based tea company Hälssen & Lyon have given the tea bag a brand new makeover by crafting them to look like popular purses. The Teabag Collection features five different styles of handbags, designed in collaboration with handbag designer Ayzit Bostan.

Each bag comes with its own tea flavor, including black teas such as Golden Bud, Hong Cha and Floral Guranse, along with darjeeling Moonlight Thurbo and Assam Doomni. The bags made their debut at Berlin Fashion Week, with a package of these special teabags being sent to the company’s “long-standing customers.” You can still order them on their website, though their price is unlisted and it is not clear where exactly it can be shipped.
