AnnushKa – Courier Bag

September 5, 2007


This handmade courier bag is washable and looks great with anything (for those of you who like to match your bags). My definition of practical doesn’t include matching. In some cases making a bag match would be less practical because you might have to change your outfit for the day or change your bag. In my male frame of mind this is not practical. But for you bag-matching types a bag that matches anything is quite practical.

This is a great basic 1 pocket bag that would work great as a woman’s purse or a manbag.

$30 [product page]

Thanks Anna!

This is a great find.

I’m all about the practical bag that is also very cool to look at. I can see my wife wearing this as a purse/diaper bag combo. I love the idea of these small 1,2,3 person shops that sell thier handcrafted stuff on etsy. From the product page:

This bag can be made in a variety of fabrics. If you see a fabric that you like in my store, please send me a message and if I have some on hand I’d be more than happy to make the bag for you at no additional cost.

thanks Heather!

Henk – not a suitcase

September 1, 2007


Practicality by definition is something easy and logical. Henk is that in everyway except in price. This non-suitcase goes for $28,000 USD. Yep that’s not a typo, twenty-eight thousand dollars. Obviously for the ultra rich. So if you love practical bags this one is really that except for the price, and for that much it better butter my bread and change my baby’s diapers. Well maybe it won’t change diapers but it was designed for sitting on it if need be.

Buy a bike and get a bag

Jorg & Olif make classic style bikes, or perhaps I should say bicycles since they are so classic. They have a promotion going through Cool Hunting for the first 25 pre-orders received through Cool Hunting you get a free matching bag that even clips onto the bicycle. I ride my bike to work everyday and love it. I encourage anyone to get out and ride a bike.

Scout $495-$595
