[life and soul]

Premium products as loyal companions need to be adaptable in any case. Therefore the unbag design links four basic colors, each one representing a special mood. Regardless of format and silhouette, every bag is made out of two Nappa colors. Each one can be shown both monochrome and combined. A single hand grip allows the eversion of the bags corpus so that the precious carrier, now two-tone, reveals a sportive attitude. The precise sealing of cut selvedges as well as every decorative stitching on the one hand adapt to the leather color, on the other hand they evoke intended contrasts.

The bags corpus is made out of tender Italian Nappa, the same quality inside and outside. It shows pure surface of precious luster as well as moving silhouettes pervaded by dividing seams with contrastive stitching. Building the inner corpus, the leather gets slightly grounded, which causes a sensible Crush Effect and a more lively draping. Everting the corpus, it leads to a two-tone and sportive, luxurious Used Look as second face of every product. Even the leather shows character: the smooth and tender porous surface of the Italian Nappa is naturally grown, therefore every piece develops an individual, unique charm.

That works similarly for the textile corpus, possessing two completely finished face sides, only to differ by variably colored Allover Prints.

No bag without carrier

[a particular bond]

Following the design concept of ]inbetweenar[, there exists a strong interrelation between the product and its user. unbag transfers this into the amorphous, seemingly undefined construction of its bag corpus. Combined with the natural behavior of tender Italian Nappa, the precious carrier’s silhouette, dimension and outer appearance depend on charge and arrangement by its user.

The design concept of unbag focuses on amorphous pouch construction as original, primary idea of a bag, effective for both leather and textile. Elaborate tie constructions allow its use combined with adjustable shoulder straps. Agility and behavior of the premium, affectionate Italian Nappa enable closure by simple foldover, depending on charging levels. One-sided fixation occurs by restoring loops in the selected carabiner position. Regarding the product life the unbag design consciously refuses zip fasteners. The same goes for bag interiors: because of two equally elaborate face sides in Nappa, temporarily internal straps, loops and carabiners can be used for placement of different accessories and belongings.....to mention telescopic umbrellas, the always missing bunch of keys and all-purpose pashminas easily draped around straps. A single hand grip allows the eversion of the bag’s corpus, revealing the interior features now used to place the shoulder strap.

A wise arrangement of the bag content allows a variable usage of the textile corpus, which complies dimension and making of the leather version. Linked via press fasteners the lining construction divides the bag interior. If the double capacity is needed, the corpus is demounted at the interior and quickly fixed, with or without content, on the outside of the leather bag. Combined with the leather strap construction two new possibilities ensue: the light version [for take away] in allover design, with color-graded and inverted patterns. The textile corpus offers the same capacity without a noteworthy weight compared to the leathery double, which adds value especially for traveling. By this means not only a trip to the beach becomes a pleasure, the way back home might suddenly end in a jovial shopping tour. According to this multitude of demands, the textile corpus is washable at any time.
