A common response to my You Bags is “I could never jam that under a car seat or put it under my chair at a restaurant.” But that’s the point: you should do just that. Oddly enough, using art has become taboo in the United States. It is definitely a luxury in our disposable culture to use a well-made and beautiful thing, but it should not be taboo. Megan also has a bag with her sweet Joey on it.
