The highly inspired Louis Vuitton design bag is a minuscule handbag measuring just 657 by 222 by 700 microns (or less than 0.03 inches wide)!! And it was sold for over $63,000 at an online auction Wednesday.

Barely visible to the human eye, the fluorescent yellowish-green bag is based on a popular Louis Vuitton design — though it is the work of a New York art collective, not the luxury label itself.

Dubbing its diminutive creation “Microscopic Handbag,” the Brooklyn-based group said  the bag is narrow to pass through the eye of a needle and is smaller than a grain of sea salt (though that may depend on how coarse you like your salt).

The object was made using two-photon polymerization, a manufacturing technology used to 3D-print micro-scale plastic parts. It was sold alongside a microscope equipped with a digital display through which the bag can be viewed.

A promotional photo shows the design in greater detail, revealing Louis Vuitton’s signature “LV” monogram. The bag appears to be based on the French label’s OnTheGo tote, which currently is selling at retail at full size for between US$3,100 and US$4,300.

The sale was hosted by Joopiter, an online auction house founded by American musician, record producer and designer Pharrell Williams. Although Williams currently serves as Louis Vuitton’s creative director of menswear, MSCHF’s chief creative officer Kevin Wiesner previously told the New York Times that the collective had not sought his or the French label’s permission to use its logo or design.

“Pharrell loves big hats, so we made him an incredibly small bag,” he told the newspaper.
