Andrea Bergart Is the Artist Turning Basketballs into Must-Have Bags

Footballs and soccer balls aren’t safe either.

By //Fashion

You may have spotted these offbeat bags on Instagram, the result of New York-based artist Andrea Bergart‘s training in fine art and passion for basketball.

These incredible bags are made-to-order in New York and are constructed from real sports balls. Also available in football, volleyball and soccer ball iterations, they’re accented with gold hardware and an adjustable leather strap and are lined with cotton, making them perfect for carrying your essentials. Bergart herself is a member of an all-female basketball team in Manhattan and also worked with fellow artist and basketball player to create and host a youtube channel, titled Call Your Ball Friends, where “women artists shoot hoops and discuss art.”

Peep the quirky line of bags above – you can order a bespoke bag for $960 USD on Bergart’s website. Find out more about Call Your Ball Friends on YouTube.
