Inspiration

Some years ago after Paris fashion week, during a secondment to relax in Les Chateaux de la Loire (Châteaux of the Loire Valley-France), we learned of an old aircraft hangar that was ceiling high with artefacts and curiosities from the past, but rarely opened for business.

We secured an appointment for the following day and when the hangar doors opened, we were presented with an Aladdin’s cave. Sleeping under an abundance of military memorabilia and inches of dust in this French treasure trove was a WWII officer’s map bag.

It was the inspiration we had been looking for to create the ideal bag for biking around London. It was designed to be worn across the body, this slim and long bag was just slightly bigger than an iPad, unfolding vertically, and to the left and right with a slip pocket, along with one side dedicated to pens and other items we can only guess at.
