Minus Messenger - Handmade in England

The Minus Messenger is based on the original messenger bag I made for myself when I could not find one I liked in the market. I especially like the shape of this bag, as I am using a conventional shape, but the proportion works great. It is very slim, but roomy enough to fit my laptop, magazines, diary etc., stuff that I need for going to work. I have put two extra pockets inside for keeping my cellphone/iPhone/iPod/wallet. A trigger hook is great for my keys. It is fastened with a snap fastener and the shoulder strap can be adjusted to suit you. A slick messenger bag to fit into modern everyday living and commuting!

The Minus messenger bag is made from fern brushed cotton twill that was made in Italy. It is fully lined with cream cotton twill that too was made in Italy. The premium quality fabric is hard wearing with a soft brushed texture. In order to reinforce the construction, I have individually stitched an eco-friendly heavy cotton canvas interlining between the shell fabric and lining.

What does interlining mean? Well, a great number of budget/mass-produced bags either use iron-on man made interlining, or no interlining at all. This makes the bag much easier and quicker to manufacture, and reduces costs. However, at the expense of true quality.

My interlining is all 100% natural (undyed, unbleached and formed without chemicals) British cotton canvas, sourced from the mills of Yorkshire and made in England. Yes, this does increase the cost and making time considerably as each piece must be individually stitched inside, but a higher quality, more durable finish is achieved.
