An evening bag, mainly made of bio-based plastics developed by VTT, features as one of the evening dress’s accessories.

The surface of the evening bag is made of moulded bioplastics reinforced with carbon black. The raw material in the handle is a thermoformable cellulose, reinforced with carbon black and Suominen Oy’s viscose-based Biolace®.
