Furoshiki: Wear, Carry, Wrap, Display

A perfectly portable collection of limited edition design souvenirs.

Daytrippers! is a collaboration between Local Heroes and V&A Dundee that supports designers by commissioning collectable, limited edition souvenirs. ⁠

We're back with a new collection for summer 2022, exploring the idea of ‘Design To Take With You’. These special commissions will help to make your next day trip colourful, fun and more sustainable.

Our souvenirs are displayed on customised Christiania cargo bikes at the V&A Dundee plaza (every day, 11am - 5pm) and on sale now at the V&A Dundee Shop.
