River Bag – Unique Messenger Bag
Working with 24 ounce canvas has enabled us to look at creating bags that simply are not possible in anything thinner. The first batch of canvas we made was so hard, tough and unlike ‘fabric’ the mill couldn’t understand what we were going to do. From this we were able to gather no one else was
stupid enough doing what we are doing, and this made us even happier. You see, our workers are used to handling heavy leather, this canvas was going to be easy for them – famous last words.
River bag developed quite quickly from the idea that bags come in all shapes and sizes, whilst we tend to favour larger is better, in 2016 we are exploring. Exploring the river – River bag can be both formal and informal, highly dependent on how it is worn, this briefcase is a new concept, the criteria for design was our standard ‘make it simple‘ – so we drafted it around carrying a laptop (a rectangle) and a zip, a handle in the middle and a shoulder strap, for your shoulder.
The insides of River Bag are as simple as the outside, on both sides you have slip pockets, one designed for flat paper work and documents – the other is crafted from padded jungle fabric, is designed for your laptop. This laptop section 43 cm x 25 cm can house a large 17 inch laptop with ease, whilst the other pockets, are ideal for smaller tablets or an iPad. 2 patch pockets, themselves 20 cm x 20 cm are perfect for passports, wallets, keys and travel documents.
Inside the main body of this unique messenger bag, you have ample room for whatever else it is you need to carry. Overall it’s a simple, well made, rectangular bag that works brilliantly kept fresh and crisp; but will look amazing after a few years of battering!!
