American designer James Piatt has taken the “Chinese finger trap puzzle” and brought it to his Finger Trap line of handbags (full size, Mini). Fingers can be slipped into the woven leather puzzle handles and “trapped” to carry the bags. The larger version comes with a detachable shoulder strap.
The Chinese finger trap is a common metaphor for a problem that can be overcome by relaxing.
