A limited-edition variation on the Swedish retailer's iconic blue Frakta bag, the Storstomma is a reusable plastic tote featuring a rainbow pattern in honor of last month's International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia, and Biphobia, as well as Pride Month, which starts today.
The original rainbow bag, which is the same size as the Frakta, debuted last year as the Kvanting bag through a partnership between IKEA and the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. This year, IKEA not only brought back that product, but also launched a new one: a smaller tote perfect for daily use.
The large Storstomma bag costs $2.99, and the small version costs only $0.99. 30% of proceeds earned from the small bag between June 1 and August 31 will be donated to the Ali Forney Center and the Los Angeles LGBT Center, up to $50,000 per organization.
