While we love our feminine clutches and handbags, it’s hard to beat the functionality of carryalls. Especially when you’re travelling abroad; you would want to have your travel must-haves, all in one sturdy bag.
Freitag, better known for their heavy-duty messenger bags, may not be the first brand that comes to mind. But you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the Swiss brand’s newest shoulder and tote bags: designs that are travel-friendly and actually, quite chic too.
If you’re in search for a business-appropriate carryall, choose these stylish designs from the newest Freitag Reference collection: a diffusion line inspired by horse-riding messengers of the eighteenth century and the laptop-toting journalists of today.
Think weave tote bags, buckle satchels and more, in bold attractive shades. Bags that are also eco-friendly to boot.
Brothers and co-founders Markus and Daniel Freitag clearly had cyclists in mind when they created the first-ever Freitag messenger bag, and this latest range is no exception.
As with all Freitag bags, these designs are made of well-used truck tarpaulins — yes, that super durable, water-repellent material that has protected precious cargo from wind, rain, hail and all sorts of harsh weather conditions.
For a casual weekend bag, grab a Freitag Joan design ($250) if you love both boxy bags and cycling. Just remove the straps and you’ll be able to fit this bag snugly on the bicycle handles.
Or go for the Betty ($325) for that to-go-to tote bag: it will keep your important documents and files in tip-top shape.
So carry a bag that has truly been “on the road” for reliable travel baggage: you’ll look more like a jet-setting traveller and less of a clueless tourist too.
