In 2000 British Airways worked with Anya Hindmarsh to design their highly-covetable First Class amenity kits. The bags are considered a collector’s item by many and are much traded on eBay.
Born in Essex in 1968, Anya Hindmarch is one of the world’s foremost accessories designers thanks to her eponymous label, Anya Hindmarch. The new Anya Hindmarch washbags went on board British Airways First class in April 2003 and the picture and color on the bags change every six months.
Below are picture few of these great heritage kits.

The card pictured below was included in the kit introduced passengers to the new collection of the BAg, a concept they developed to enhance the in-flight experience. A quote in the card reads “The BAg may help you get rid of jet lag, but we are certain you won’t want to get rid of your BAg!”
