Design Edition Toiletpaper Pack

February 2011

The Hakle toilet paper “Special Edition Pack” - this case shows how a simple truth was the starting point for a relevant design solution and brand activation. Buying toilet paper is a chore. Everybody needs it, but nobody really likes being seen carrying it home. Especially ladies find it a bit weird. So in cooperation with a fashion label a special edition pack was designed and produced. A multifunctional, rather stylish carrier bag. Special instore placement brought it to market with great success.

I see where you going with this, but they got the weird item to sell, buttttt it can be used for more than toilet paper.

Ok, like the idea of co-operating with fashion labels. Not convinced that designing special edition anti-embarrassment versions of normal packaging wouldn't have been more effective (and have longer term expansion potential).
The final 100 000 Euros figure seems fairly low and doesn't mention the cost of special edition packs

why do you even need to carry so many toilet papers all the time??..u jst go pick it up from the mart and carry it home..cant find a reason why this concept was made at all..

i don't know how toilet paper is sold in india but you pay way more if you buy smaller packages of it. and the observation of people being embarassed carrying around is right - i personally hate it to carry it around and i am no woman.
