Practical. Durable. And the picture of authentic African style. The PPC Cement Laptop Bag puts a brand that is uniquely South African over your shoulder every time you walk out the door.

So how do we make them? An unused Pretoria Portland Cement paper bag is the beginning of each piece. (Have a look at to see the original packaging.) Production takes a while, but it’s worth it. We separate the layers, remove the top and third layer of the bag and fuse them together. Bonding them with black cotton means that durability is never compromised. From there, you can treat it like any other fabric. We draw the pattern, cut it and stitch the bag together. And we’re quite pleased with the result.

The PPC Cement Laptop Bag is as practical as you can get, too. There are two sections and two pockets: carry your laptop cables in one pocket and an iPhone or mouse in the other. A padded divider separates your laptop from any other papers or notes, and the entire inside of the bag is also padded to protect everything that you carry inside it.

The bag closes with two magnets discreetly hidden on the flap.

We treat the bag with Scotch Guard so you don’t have to worry about exposing it to the elements. Yes, even snow.

The strap of the bag is cotton webbing and is completely adjustable.

Size-wise, you’re looking at the perfect fit for a 17” laptop.
