Bile Beans Tote Bags

Bile Beans Tote Bags


The iconic ghost-sign of York now printed on to a long handled cotton tote bag.

The Bile Beans mural can be found on Lord Mayors walk. The post war advert has been a local landmark for over 70 years and during that period has undergone two controversial re-paintings.
Bile Beans were said to promote “inner health” and touted as a cure-all for just about anything from influenza to constipation . The glossy black pills were devised in Australia in 1899 and became a brand leader in the UK during the 1930’s and were still on sale until the mid-1980’s.
