Winepocket, the latest design by California-based Josh Jakus, is one of those products you never knew you needed, but when you discover it, it seems like the perfect solution. I never like spending a decent amount of money on a bottle of wine to see it promptly put into a cheap plastic bag or a crumpled paper. Jakus' Winepocket can either be an extra gift with the wine for the host or you can take it home with you to use for your next invite out. In either case, it can be reused again and again.
We also like the perfect elegance of the design: a piece of felt with a hole cut out, doubling as the opening for the bottle and the bag's handle. You can see this and Jakus' other beautifully minimal felt products at the San Francisco International Gift Fair 28 July-1 August 2007 at booth 6014, and at the New York International Gift Fair, 11-12 August 2007, booth 4012.
