LightBag / Backpack


LightBag is a drawstring bag which combined two different kinds of fabrics - solar fabric and fibre optic fabric on each side. During daytime, sunlight can be absorbed by the solar fabric side. And when getting into the dark, just turn to the other side with fibre optic fabric to keep you safe. Furthermore, the inside of the bag can also be lighten up by the fibre optic fabric, so users can find things in bag easily in the dark. This is not only an ideal bag for safty and convenience when doing outdoor activities, but also a benefit for places lacking of electric light. People can carry their bags out, and then bring the light back home.
