Each handmade, 12” x 16” padded messenger-style bag is beautiful, hip, sturdy, and totally unique!
Some are made with repurposed felted sweaters. Others are reincarnated from a combination of sweaters, wool, leather or suede coats and jackets, wool skirts and even blankets. The bags are fully lined with repurposed, sometimes vintage fabric and most of them have a large inside pocket. We incorporate the original coat or jacket pockets on the outside of the bag whenever we can. All of the materials used to make the bags are washed and/or felted in very hot water and then reinforced with heavy interfacing. The bags are well padded and super sturdy. The shoulder strap is a repurposed leather belt which is hand sewn onto the bag. Most of the bags have a beautiful antique button on the front flap. You’ll receive a “d.fuzz.it” sweater/fabric comb if your bag is made from a wool sweater or jacket to take care of any future “pilling”. The bags can be hand washed with warm water and mild soap, dry cleaned or spot cleaned. You can also “Scotch Gard” your bag if you are so inclined.
We also make a 12” x 16” Gigabag without a strap. We call it the “Gigaclutch”.
Our BRAND NEW messenger-style Gigabag/Gigaclutch measures 15.5” x 11.5” and is custom made for the MacBook Pro 13 - the most popular Apple laptop – and other small laptops. (Be sure to measure your laptop before purchasing a Gigabag. Allow for slightly smaller inside bag dimensions.)
Slightly slimmer and sleeker than the Original Gigabag, our new Gigabags have a little less padding and no inside pockets … making them more like a large envelope-style sleeve. Each handmade, one-of-a-kind bag is reincarnated from a combination of repurposed wool, leather or suede coats and jackets and upholstery samples/remnants. The bags are fully lined with repurposed, sometimes vintage fabric. We incorporate the original coat or jacket pockets on the outside of the bag whenever we can. We’ve also added an inside tab with a magnetic snap to keep your laptop extra secure. Another magnetic snap is incorporated into the tip of the large front flap. We include a fabulous antique button whenever it works with the particular bag design. All of the materials used to make the bags are washed and then reinforced with heavy interfacing. The bags are padded and super sturdy. Each bag has a removable adjustable shoulder strap which is made from repurposed leather belts.
