Description

Karagkiozis is the protagonist of the greek Shadow Theatre, a type of theatrical
play acted out with figures moving behind a white sheet. A traditional figure of Greece,
Karagkiozis is in reality a symbol, representing the average Greek in the times of the
Turkish occupation, viewed as an impoverished, cunning and uneducated individual.
B612’s blue & white canvas drawstring backpack brings a figure tightly bound to the
greek culture together with contemporary aesthetics. Canvas and the two colors
known to symbolize the greek culture, with a sarcastic approach towards the more ...
disadvantageous aspects of the greek mentality, in a piece with effortless style. The
backpack also features an inner pocket.

B612 creations are combinations of words, pictures and colors that can stand the test
of time and cause intense feelings to whomever wears them. They communicate
their messages through symbols and accessories, while raising issues that concern
modern Greece, in their own way.
