Minus Messenger Bag

The Minus Messenger Bag is based on the original messenger bag I made for myself when I could not find one I liked in the market. It is 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 stone brushed cotton twill that was made in Italy and it is fully lined with dove grey 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 individually stitch an eco-friendly heavy cotton canvas interlining between the 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.
