The bags are made by local artist Claire Cohen (Montclair Made), who works mostly with vintage textiles and recycled items, or rather, upcycled items. Click here for a fun interview with Claire on Montclair Patch.

The MFF Banner Bags are made from the previous years’ Festival banners that hang around town promoting the Festival. You can purchase the bags at MFF Headquarters at 494 Bloomfield Avenue and at events throughout town the week during after the Festival from 10 am to 4 pm.
