We want YOU to design a tote bag for Farrago Magazine! We have some exciting prizes for the winner and two runners up, alongside the opportunity to have your work featured in our print edition. 

For our term’s first piece of merchandise, we want something that wholly encompasses 2022. These bags will be gifted to all of our contributors, so we want them to be a special memento of our time together this year. 

Please show us your best interpretation of our 2022 themes! 

  • Punk
  • Folklore
  • After Hours
  • Be The Cowboy 
  • Voulez-Vous
  • Retrofuturism 

Focus on one or create some delightful hybrid combination — we’re open to anything! The Farrago editors will choose winners based on quality and adherence to our terms and conditions.
