Bag a €40 Knuttel for Valentine'sModel Suzanne McCabe helps artist Graham Knuttel launch his limited edition 'Valentine Bag' yesterday. brian mcevoy
THIS is not a plastic bag, it's simply a work of art. Dublin artist Graham Knuttel has a reputation for selling paintings for tens of thousands to stars like Colin Farrell and Sylvester Stallone.
He has now designed a limited-edition €40 shopping bag, featuring a romantic painting, which is fast turning into a Valentine's winner for a leading charity.
All proceeds from sales of the colourful bag will go to Cheeverstown, a voluntary organisation providing services to almost 400 children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
Just 2,500 of the bags have been made and they will be on sale exclusively at House of Fraser in Dundrum Town Centre and its sister store in Belfast, with a limited number also available on cheeverstown.ie and on knuttel.com.
Graham will be signing some of them at House of Fraser on the evening of February 10.
