The Messenger / Charcoal

You know those days you just need a fuss-free little bag to carry your phone, keys, wallet and not much else? This is your new go-to. Its cushiony bobbled texture means your devices and fragile things are protected from falls. This bag also comes with a sturdy detachable cross-body strap made from reclaimed tyres.

The bag is 100% recycled using discarded textiles and garments—your little black dress, your black suit, or that plain black tee were all pulped, recycled and respun into yarn and handwoven by craftswomen from India.


This bag will be made to order—please allow 10-15 days for making and delivery.
