Carga Felt Bags

Firstly I have to admit I am always on the lookout for a manbag that I can use to carry my laptop, sketchpad and pens. On this epic journey I have come across a few interesting options the most beautiful range being the Carga felt bags.

Designer Mauro Bianucci hand crafted the first bag for himself out of industrial wool felt left over from a previous project. The bag caught the eye of a client who ordered a few, and soon a collection was formed. The bags are currently hand assembled in Buenos Aires, using recycled industrial felt sourced in Brazil. Instead of brand logos, all bags come with a serial number hand embossed on a discreet disc allowing the design to speak for itself.Constructed from industrial wool felt, aluminum rivets and patinated leather, the Carga range are a unique example of a masculine bag.

With prices ranging from $175 to $345, perhaps it is on the more expensive end of the manbag spectrum but you could use it as inspiration to design your own felt manbag using Ponoko’s Grey Felt .carga templates

    I stumbled across these same bags a few weeks ago via NOTCOT…and they are soooooooo coool. I’m glad you featured them here! One question…I see that Ponoko now offers felt as a material…is this industrial felt, or like craft felt? Is it similar to what these bags are made of?
