As with many jobs, it required her to carry a large laptop, pitch books and sometimes an overnight change of clothes. But when trying to shop for computer bags, the sales reps in most of the bigger brands’ stores would ask her to look in the men’s department because women’s bags weren’t supposed to be practical.
The inspiration for every part of the design of these bags comes from situations she has had during work. Like when a bottle of water fell over in her bag and destroyed a computer while running at the airport to catch a train. Or when she came home exhausted after work at 2 AM, and she had to empty her bag on the street to find chargers or keys. And, of course, from always dragging gym clothes along in a separate bag.
The bags are meant to be a love letter to women in business who want something elegant to use at work. To read more about the bags and how they are made, click here.
