In Japan, if you purchase something in a bulky or awkward sized (usually a box), you may end up with one of these carrier handles.
A length of string is looped around the box and the handle eases onto the strings allowing you to carry it your package more comfortably and safely without the string cutting into your hands. Simple uncomplicated, functional and reusable.
Functionality trumps aesthetics in this item. The carrier handle is made of lightweight, durable plastic. It is designed to be easy to hold, strong and simple to use whilst keeping production and material costs to a minimum.
Anonymously designed and unbranded it is a great example of a Super Ordinary Object.
