Bags

Here are some examples of bags we have designed…


Cyclone technical outdoor bags

The Cyclone bags are a speculative project of design and sampling we did to offer to outdoor retailers a “white label” collection that they could have branded with their name. The pictures below are the first samples…

Here below are the second samples – you can see how by the second sample stage we are refining the designs and the samples. Developing the samples is a very important part of the process – not only do we simply make the bags look better but we send the samples out for rigorous testing by typical users – their task is to test the bag to the limit and if necessary – break it. We would rather know about a problem before production than after!

We work closely with clients to test, test, and test again and refine the designs till we are all comfortable that the bags are perfect and ready for mass production.

As you can see the process of developing a concept into a design and then into a perfect sample –  is simply a methodical process….but one you have to be patient to do and work through to make a successful commercial product.

Yoso bike and pannier bags for commuters

Fischer are a major distributor of cycling accessories. They wanted a range of bags that could be carried as pannier bags but also be carried as backpacks and messenger bags. They had their own dedicated bike fixing system hat we needed to integrate. These are some of the original concept sketches showing the different look and features we proposed.
