Designed for the commuter lifestyle it is conveniently within the arms reach for all types of errand. Made from recycled polyester fabric it is durable enough to carry 40 kg load. Its permanent pleated design provides expandable volume and thus is both functional and aesthetic. Its contemporary design, bright colors & compactness make it unique and fashionable.

Hammad Abid is a textile designer specializing in weaving. His work is an examination of three-dimensional transforming structures. Hammad playfully combines origami, the art of paper folding with textiles to create three-dimensional tactile surface or patterns. His fabrics combine experimental weaving techniques with his own sensuous approach to materials, color, and pattern. Born in a prominent community of weavers in India, his creations stem from his craftsmanship heritage.
