Believe It Or Not: Big Blue IKEA Bags Are The New Fashion Item!


The IKEA Frakta bag has recently become a sensation after high end brand Balenciaga created its own replica. The people are surprised by the similarities between those bags.

DIY-savvy Instagrammers are using the Frakta's sturdy blue material to create IKEA-inspired fashions that are, surprisingly, both functional and stylish.
