Accordion Bag

No more unpacking? Can it be true? This bag’s accordion strap allows for open shelf storage when hung, meaning you can do without hangers and hotel drawers. When folded, it looks like a normal-ish bag (in reflective material) that’s easy enough to carry around. It’s worth mentioning that the hook looks a little worrisome; if there’s no storage option for it, it might catch on something.

Available in Green, Blue, or Yellow.

TravelTeq Trash bags

This travel bag is mighty impressive. Handmade in Italy, it has 8 inside compartments (4 open, 3 zipped) and one outside compartment/pocket (for ticket or mobile phone) to make sure all your important things stay put. It’s got an undercover sort of look to it, especially in the darker ‘Panther’ color. Also, there’s free shipping to the US and EU, if that helps take the edge off the price.

Accommodates up to a 15 inch laptop.
Florentine Vachetta leather with water resistant nylon lining.
40w x 30h x 8d cm

Bergkamp Double Tote

Two are better than one… at least in this case. There’s a ton of totes available these days, but this is the first I’ve seen doubled up so that you can organize your items. The canvas ‘bridge’ that conects the two totes can be used to hold jackets or yoga mats or whatever other larger items you have. I’d say it might be an easy DIY project as well, if you’ve got two of the same sized totes and an aversion to buying more. If you’d rather just plonk down the cash for this one, it’s available in natural, black, and orange.

Newspaper print laptop bag

If you read your news online, this laptop bag might be a good way to give tradition a nod while camouflaging your laptop. Designed to look like a newspaper folded in half, it’s fully lined in black satin so it’ll keep your laptop nicely protected. It’s maybe a bit more expensive than a plan ol’ laptop case, but good tech ‘fashion’ is hardly ever cheap.

AO OR Organizer by Nooka

The vivid colors and simple form definitely attracted me to this product initially. I have a feeling that silicone may not be an ideal material for a wallet cause of its inherit “stickyness”, and wouldn’t be suited well to be constantly taken in and out of pockets, but it should be able to handle anything else you can throw at it. I’m thinking iPod or passport case.

The Nooka Asset Organizer (AO) is a system of containers that can be adapted to their needs of the user – whether it is for cards, cash, licenses, or photos. They are made from a soft silicone rubber-like substance that is comfortable to sit on, expandable, and water resistant.

Size Open: 199mm x 66mm
Closed: 96mm x 66mm

KimKim Papr Hand Bag

KimKim’s leather ‘paper’ bag joins the club of look-a-likes (see MyPaperBag) as well as offering a few smaller sized options.

By staying close to the original designs, inspiration, and basic construction methods, we pay homage to the honesty in ordinary products. At first glance, the identical proportions and symmetry more than elude to everyday products. The result is not homespun or designer kitsch, but a discerning elegance that is modest, yet exceptional. Our products are not used for praise or display, but adheres to a certain virtuosity which contemporary fashion lacks. Accordingly, our products transcend the elements of fashion by outclassing the test of facetious trends.
