So recently came across the supposed new big thing (that I had never heard of) called the Freitag Bag. I guess it is more popular in Europe but keep your eyes open because we may be seeing a lot more of them soon. It all started with two bike-riding designers who lived next to a truck route in Zurich. So the idea was to create these messenger bags from truck tarpaulins, bicycle innertubes, car seat belts and used airbags. That sounds pretty cool to me… all these things are totally waterproof and totally unique! Some even still have a little dirt on them, a little something that didn’t come of in the high powered wash they receive.
They have a lot of different styles of bags…for men and women. They also have a lot of unique designs and colors. Shopping online at there website was actually quite difficult. It seems easier to look up local shops that sell them and go there. I found this one at CITE in NYC.
$80 at Cite NYC
The bags are also available at ATRIUM, and TG 170.
Check out the official website to all of the cool styles, more about the company, and where you can shop in your area.FREITAG
