The blue and white tin food container (tenekes) is an iconic everyday object. Used to store and transport olive oil and feta cheese, two of the most popular culinary goods of the country, its presence still adorns and services the Greek household.

With Atlas Shopper, a tin and leather tote bag, STUDIOLAV turned this cult object into a witty fashion accessory for a daily wander in the city or the interior of a home.

Atlas Shopper was created in response to the invitation by design retail destination DING to use the traditional tin container as a raw material for a design object.
