TRAVEL PROOF STYLE (that screws the world less)

Welcome to my little etsy shop of reinventions!

If you ever-
- stood stranded outside your door waiting to get mugged and die … because you can't find your dang keys
- been snubbed by a saleslady who judged you by your sloppy bag choice
- begged a barista for your latte …because you forgot your purse in the other bag when you changed bags to match your ootd
- carried an expensive designer bag… that felt like an underwire bra on a hard day's night

This shop is for you.
I am Rowena, a mechanical engineer who loves travelling in style but hates to carry heavy. And I am serving you patented fashion-reinventions that help solve first world problems.

EYECATCHER- Cool way not to lose glasses.
FCS- (1+2+3) The Ultimate Travel Bag

They are TRAVEL PROOF forget proof, pickpocket deterrent, easy-access, weather-proof, hands-free MUTANTS that transform to adapt to your multitasking life.
All that and #sickening too.

And i try to screw the world less.
Not by calling a cheap plastic bag that end in a landfill after a season “vegan leather”. You and the world deserve more respect than that.

But with light, multi-function products ethically made to last.

Italian tanneries use only food by-products and manages its waste disposal responsibly. (their government regulates it strictly)
I use the top-grain (outside part of the skin) which is the best, stronger part.

Be wary of terms like genuine leather, reworked leather, split leather- they are the cheaper lower weak/over-treated/almost plasticized rejects that don’t age gracefully. The difference of their price and quality is almost 4-5X under.

Helping me are two balding Italians, Luigi and Massimo.
Luigi is our leather whisperer who talks leather like Kanye talks Kanye. With him, your future bag is made to last till you die even if you intend to die old.
Massimo is the anti-thesis of an Italian. He makes things happen in time (and in Italy, that is a super power.

We want you to look great but not at the world’s expense.
Buy it once, look great for life and screw the world less.

Rowena, Luigi, Massimo,
Grigio Armani, Dolce e Gabbana (the mascats)

Thank you!

  • Massimo

    Stock Coordinator, Shipper, Makes Sure You Get Your Bags In Time

    I doubt if Massimo is really Italian. He's fastidious that all's done right on time. Am I ryt?! He's not normal, for sure. So long as its working to our advantage, who are we to judge? (Dont he look like a constipated Daniel Craig?)

  • Grigio Armani, Dolce e Gabbana

    Mascats, Keeps Us Sane

    Meet my neighbors cats- Grigio Armani and Dolce e Gabbana. They are cute and nice cats, not the type who are plotting your murder. We are holding them hostage. If you buy our bags, these cats live. jk. #isthattoosoon

When stocks have run out, it will take us 2-3 weeks to stock up on materials and make new stock.

Custom made orders take 2-3 weeks to make. If there is a lot of order, you will be informed within 2 business days of the longer waiting time.

Some colors take 6 weeks to order- because quality tanning process needs 4 weeks curing to have even colors. If this is the case, we will let you know so you can decide whether to wait or pick an alternative color.
