"The Kent-based design studio is today unveiling their first four totes entitled, Hand Bag, Man Bag, School Bag and Carrier Bag. Each striking design created to champion a range of socioethical themes. They range from Women's Rights, Positive Masculinity, Identity and Social Cohesion.

Design has a hugely important role to play in solving the many challenges we face. Especially when it comes to providing accessible routes to knowledge and inspiring individuals to engage.

I want these bags to play a role in bringing people closer to the debates. Providing the huge swathes of us interested in positive change, with a simple place to start. The reality is that there's some wonderful work being done out there on the ground. My only aim with Oasthaus is to pass that information on in a positive and engaging way."
