Pick ‘n Pay chose 24-year-old graphic designer Charlotte Coetzee’s entry as the design for its new limited edition ecofriendly bag. Coetzee won R20,000 for winning the web-based competition, which drew 386 design entries and nearly 55,000 votes. The bags will be manufactured by Township Patterns, a group of women from Cape Town Townships, and will be made from locally sourced natural materials. The bags will reportedly be available in Pick n Pay stores around the country from March.
