Iconic S'pore takeaway kopi plastic bag is now an actual bag

If you really like your kopitiam kopi or just like things that look like other things, then this kopi bag will be perfect for you:

Sold by local label WHENIWASFOUR, the bags go for S$19.90 each.

Each bag comes with both pink and green straps that you can use interchangeably, as well as a straw -- just like a real kopi bag.

Transparent PVC and brown PVC are used to make the bag. Its dimensions are 32cm (width) x 42cm (height) x 110cm (length, including handle), allowing it to fit A4-sized documents comfortably.
