CarrierBag 1 — For care
The world is in need of repair. This bag wouldn’t have existed without piecing bits and pieces of yarn together. It’s made of both cotton and linen yarn — hand made at Nesodden, Norway. One stitch after another, this is a time-consuming effort. But it provides relief in times of despair.

“In The Carrier Bag Theory of Fiction, visionary author Ursula K. Le Guin retells the story of human origin by redefining technology as a cultural carrier bag rather than a weapon of domination.
Hacking the linear, progressive mode of the Techno-Heroic, the Carrier Bag Theory of human evolution proposes: ‘before the tool that forces energy outward, we made the tool that brings energy home.’ Prior to the preeminence of sticks, swords and the Hero’s long, hard, killing tools, our ancestors’ greatest invention was the container: the basket of wild oats, the medicine bundle, the net made of your own hair, the home, the shrine, the place that contains whatever is sacred. The recipient, the holder, the story. The bag of stars.”
This is a carrier bag for care.
