MAKE2MEND

While I've always been more than happy to repair and renovate my bags I've recently put extra effort into refining the design and way I sew them to make this as easy as possible; I call this the MAKE2MEND ETHOS

For example I only use standard YKK zippers in my bags so they can be readily repaired or replaced if needed, either by myself or pretty much any competent sewer.

I'll be posting more about this on the blog soon ....

V2.0 • A complete rethink

Smallish Shoulderbag V2.0 • A complete rethink 

I've recently redesigned my entire range of bags so they function equally well for both right and left handed users (with all zippers and pockets are now symmetrical) Along with this significant improvement I've also added these features to the Smallish Shoulderbag 💡 3cm wider = 20% extra capacity 💡 Secret MYKI pocket 💡 Pouch pocket on...

A4 Shoulderbag V2.0 • A complete redesign

Along with the recent redesign I've also substantially updated the A4 Shoulderbag.  Compared to the other styles this bag is a little simpler (and hence lighter) as the open document pocket on the front meant also adding one to the back didn't make sense.   This also meant the A4 Shoulderbag doesn't...

A4 matttPACK V2.0 • A complete rethink 

Along with the recent redesign I've also added this new style, a slightly smaller version of the matttPACK (basically 4cm shorter and narrower). I've made this as a custom order for the past year or two and it is basically a combination of the Zipper Backpack and the A4 Shoulderbag...

The backpack configuration

This bag can be worn as both a shoulderbag or backpack making it an extremely versatile bag. To convert into a backpack the straps simply clip onto loops inside the concealed base pocket. This ensures it is very comfortable as the straps hug the side of the body rather than cutting into your waist....

The shoulderbag configuration

When worn as a shoulderbag it sits close to the body with the backpack straps tucked into the rear pouch pocket (as shown). Like all other shoulderbags I make the shoulder strap can also be changed, with several different colours available to purchase separately. If you like to ride a bag...

New • Enamel pin logo

Control the visibility of branding As part of this redesign I have also updated my logo which is now a nonagon (nine is my favourite number) with a single m. As this is an enamel pin/badge the logo can be placed wherever you'd like on the bag (or even removed altogether...

New • Dual main zipper

Open your bag without looking All bags now have a dual YKK #8 main zipper with paracord zipper pulls, allowing the bag to be closed to either side (or middle) and locked when travelling. Larger zipper pulls also allow the bag to be readily opened and closed if wearing gloves and/or by those with limited dexterity.

New • Secret Myki/card pockets

Commute easier when your hands are full By refining the external pocket I've been able to add two hidden (yet accessible) card holders at the top edge. While these were designed to hold a MYKI (or similar) travel card (so you can simply tap on with it in the pocket) they are also an...

New • Reinforced bottom edge

Makes your bag more durable & waterproof First developed for the A4 Shoulderbag the reinforced edging for the printed fabric panel is now used on every bag. This deeper base minimises wear on both the edge and corners while also improving waterproofness if placed on the ground. As this is the most common...

New • Rear pouch pocket

First developed for the matttPACK to store extra straps I've since added the rear pouch pocket to all the bags. The pocket is the full height of the bag and a great place to store small items such as sketchbooks, envelopes or even pens when you're on the go. As...

New • Concealed pocket in base

Always have your shopping bags and umbrella My very favourite new feature is the sneaky zipper pocket in the base. I designed this pocket to be expandable and fit items like umbrellas and reusable shopping bags (which also act as padding to protect your iPad or laptop in the main compartment). If used to store...
