There have been plenty of solar bags and backpacks in the past, but looking like an eco-friendly Ninja Turtle was about the best you could hope for in terms of style.
The Diffus solar handbag is different. Designers from the Alexandra Institute and the Swiss embroidery specialists at Forster Rohne integrated 100 miniaturized monocrystalline silicon â€˜sequinsâ€™ onto each bag in a way that transforms the solar panels into a stylish pattern. And, like the ugly bags before it, the Diffus can store energy for recharging portable devices.
No details on pricing or availability have been announced so far, but you know that the ugly bags are still going to be your best bet in terms of affordability.
