I was working on an order for a lovely brown messenger last Saturday and realized, upon finishing, that I had veered off track and re-designed the Messenger Bag. This has been on my list of things to do for quite some time so I'm glad this order's production happened on a weekend. Had it been during the week, I surely would have sped through, made the same bag (which is a great bag) and not have allowed my self the space to wander. The results are good. Really good, actually! I worked out several changes, all of which will make for a much more functional (and better looking) bag.
I won't say a lot about it because I think the design speaks for itself. Small changes to the proportions and a bit of added hardware (all with a purpose) make for a well designed and functional bag. I'm hoping to have them available in the shops by early next week. I would love to hear what you think!
