Why such a big price difference?!



Well, it’s because the Arena is made of blue wrinkled, glazed leather but the Ikea Frakta is made of recyclable polypropylene, which explains why it’s so much cheaper.

Thrilled that the luxury brand has imitated their design, Ikea has said that they are “deeply flattered” that their cheap tote has inspired Balenciaga.

But that’s not all, in response to the bag, they recently took to their Facebook page and posted a playful jibe at the fashion powerhouse.
