Weight Of The World Tote Bag x Tony Albert
Never overpack your bag with Tony Albert's timely reminder. This 100% cotton canvas tote holds everything you need to navigate the world around you.
Collecting the fabrics used for Albert's collage artworks over two decades, they enter his collection as vintage printed material, bedding, curtains, cushions, placemats, and wall hangings.
He turns the tables on history, cheekily yet assertively reclaiming these designs and motifs, termed by Albert as "Aboriginalia", to honour the subjects and voices of the works' original creators.
About the Artist
Over the past 10 years Australian artist Tony Albert has achieved extraordinary visibility and much critical acclaim for his visual art practice, which combines text, video, drawing, painting and three-dimensional objects.
Examining the legacy of racial and cultural misrepresentation, particularly of Australia’s Aboriginal people, Albert has developed a universal language that seeks to rewrite historical mistruths and injustice.
Albert’s work can be seen in major national and international museums and private collections.

Thanks so much Third Drawer Down for bringing Tony Albert into our home. We are great admirers of his work, and now we have coasters and a tote bag. So chuffed.
I love this bag. So big. So gorgeous. I love Tony Albert's work. It's so good to know Third Drawer Down do too!
Loved the bag but plastic packaging was way more than necessary
