KARA's Expanding Terry Cloth Baby Tote Is Pure Nostalgia

Who else remembers having these as a kid?

If you grew up in the ’90s, a favorite part of summer was undoubtedly the expanding towels and T-shirts that you soaked in a sink full of water. Starting with a tiny rock-like piece of compressed fabric, youthful eyes would watch with amazement as the small package would gradually expand into a small item emblazoned with your favorite cartoon. Bringing back this unfiltered piece of nostalgia, NYC-based label KARA recently shared a prototype of an expanding terry cloth version of its popular Baby Tote bag.

Starting with a compressed bag that is about the size of a hockey puck, the accessory eventually transforms into the tote’s unmistakable shape as it draws in water. The whole submersion process takes about 30 seconds in total. Although the bag has been described as a prototype and is shared on founder Sarah Law‘s personal Instagram page rather than the brand’s official page, we’re hoping that these sentimental bags will see a wider release soon. You can see the full process video in the IG post below, and can shop KARA’s latest releases at the label’s web store.

Stay tuned here as we find out more. To see more from KARA, don’t miss the latest colorways of its cult-status Bike Wallet.
