OK, Bag Monster is a moronic name, but Monster has become a catch-all phrase for "Hey, this will help you do something" This section will help you find the bags you're looking for (like you're really looking for them). Leaving everything blank will retrieve a list of all bags, however that may cause the page to load slowly.

Korean Air

Approximate Vintage: 1987
Received From: Linda Weber
Print or Image Color: Green
Background / Bag Color: White

Korean Air

Approximate Vintage: 1989
Received From: Hans Ahlborg
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
At first glance, this bag looks identical to the 1997 version, however upon closer scrutiny, you can see that they changed the first line of Korean detail! Perhaps a Korean speaker could help us all understand why.

Flash! Anonymous Korean speaker translates older bag as: "Use in the case you do not feel okay" and newer bag as the more precise: "Use when you experience motion sickness".

Korean Air at long last puts actual Korean on their bag instead of just the 3 lonely Chinese characters.

Korean Air

Korean Air goes with an even softer blue which almost acts as a sedative to quell your turbulent stomach contents.

Korean Air Lines

Received From: Jo Boyd
Print or Image Color: Blue
Background / Bag Color: White
This bag harkens back to a time when the airline referred to themselves as KAL and still printed a wacky logo on the bag.

Identical to other bag except it does not have blocks printed on the back.

KAL is wearing a witches hat!

Korean Air Lines

Like the other older Korean Air Lines bag, this bag harkens back to a time when the carrier referred to themselves as KAL and still printed a wacky logo on the bag. Very tall and thin with absolutely no closing mechanism, other than "folding toward you", which seems like a really silly thing to print on a plastic bag that is incapable of being folded.

Korean Air Lines

Approximate Vintage: 1972

I'm not really sure how old this bag is. My guess is 1972 but it could be early 80s based upon design. Another great old bag from the Andrew Angel collection.

Ktt MTR

Approximate Vintage: 2010

Print or Image Color: Red, Navy, White
Background / Bag Color: Blue, Navy
This bag was taken from an MTR train (Ktt) that runs from Hong Kong to Guangzhon, China. Pretty fancy for a train.

This bag was taken from an MTR train (Ktt - Kowloon Through Train) that runs from Hong Kong to Guangzhon, China. Pretty fancy for a train. I like that it says Fold Backward

Kunming Airlines

Approximate Vintage: 2014

Print or Image Color: White, Yellow
Background / Bag Color: Yellow, White
Very light and understated yellow colors on this bag featuring a peacock. Pretty much every Kunming flight starts or ends in Kunming China.

Kuwait Airways

Got to love the art deco flying wishbone logo.

Kuwait Airways

Kuwait: Home of the flying wishbone. Or is that some wacky Arabic character?

Kuwait Airways

Approximate Vintage: 2015

"Waste Bag" was too language dependent so now they just print a trash can on the bag with the cheery "Wish you a Pleasant Flight" sentiment.

L'Oréal

Approximate Vintage: 1988
Received From: Jim Thompson
Print or Image Color: Black
Background / Bag Color: White
There's nothing quite like protest barf bag. This bag was created in order to send a message of protest to cosmetics giant L'Oréal and get them to stop experimenting on animals. The bag requires a 25 cent stamp, so that means this bag was created some time between 1988 and 1991. The bag says:

L'Oréal tortures animals in its testing labs! Skin and hair-care products are smeared on the raw, shaved backs of rabbits and force-fed to rats. It's enough to make you sick.

What you can do

  1. Carefully remove this bag from the magazine.
  2. Put a 25¢ stamp in the upper right-hand corner.
  3. Write a letter tof protest. Tell L'Oréal you won't buy thier products until they stop testing on animals.
  4. Insert the letter into the bag, tape the bag shut and send it in!

LACSA

Approximate Vintage: 1997
Received From: Christoph Vogel
Print or Image Color: Blue and Red
Background / Bag Color: White
Identical to other 1997 Lacsa except the stars in the fold are half way up the bag.
