Rogoz backpack was made as a contemporary interpretation of a traditional wickerbag, used primarily for market food purchase. It is part of the Croatian material culture associated with the dying tradition of wickerwork. Both are made on a loom from the bulrush plant treads. By updating the existing forms and adding new materials and functions, aim of this product was to reintroduce this object and its purpose to younger users.
