Beijing-based designer Zhijun Wang used an IKEA FRAKTA shopping bag to create a very fashionable wearable face mask.
Zhijun Wang is famous for making masks out of sneakers. This time, the Beijing-based designer and artist decided to work with something we all have somewhere deep in a closet: a blue IKEA shopping bag.
Wang actually created the IKEA FRAKTA face mask back in 2017 with the help of his partner Yutong Duan. At that time, the IKEA shopping back had suddenly become a fashion phenomenon. He thought this would be a good time to resurface his DIY creation in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Wang has been making fashionable face masks since 2013. Over the years, he has created more than 200 sneaker masks, collected by the likes of Takashi Murakami, James Harden, Jeff Staple, Liam Payne, and the MoMA NYC, among others. He has also collaborated with Nike, adidas, Reebok, PUMA, CLOT, and more.
If you want to try and make your own mask, you should start by watching Zhijun Wang’s tutorial:
