FEATURES

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 rear

💡 Redesigned internal pockets

💡 Main zipper cord zipper pulls

💡 Sandblasted metal pin for branding 

💡 Different width straps can be used (not just narrower strap)

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 if preferred).

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 POCKET

Commute easier when your hands are full

By refining the Smallish Shoulderbag external pocket I've been able to add a hidden (yet accessible) card holder inside 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 excellent place for backup cards or cash (especially when travelling).

 

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 area needing patching and repair in my older bags this update will greatly improve the longevity of your bag.

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 it sits against your body when wearing the bag (and quite deep) it is quite secure and easy to access without looking. 

LIFETIME+ GUARANTEE

I'm very proud of the quality of the bags I create so now offer the Lifetime+ Guarantee on both new and existing products.

Rather than just covering loose stitching and/or manufacturing faults this new guarantee now also covers upcycling your bag into a new product/s when it does eventually wear out!

This is only possible because I use the best materials to originally make my bags and while I've also designed them to be readily repaired (such as zippers and printed fabric) though at a certain point often a bag is no longer serviceable.

At this point rather than consigning a bag to landfill (or the back of a cupboard) I now encourage the materials in the bag that are still useful to be reworked (or upcycled) into a new product/s such as a pouch or smaller bag.

Along with greatly increasing the useful lifespan of the materials used it also allows the emotional connection with the original bag to be retained, for example if it was a birthday gift or was used on a particularly memorable trip. 

If you've an existing bag you no longer use please get in touch and we can discuss what might be possible :)


 

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 ....

DELIVERY

MADE-TO-ORDER BAGS

Most bags are made-to-order so need to be sewn before being delivered.

STANDARD POST is FREE and generally takes about ten days to be sewn and ready to deliver or collect.

Selecting EXPRESS POST ensures your bag arrives as quickly as it can (I will also do my best to expedite sewing your bag).

If you need your bag to arrive by a particular date just let me know and we can work out the best way to make this happen!


ALREADY SEWN BAGS

A small number of bags are marked as ALREADY SEWN and will be posted the sameday (if a weekday) so usually arrive within a day or two.

SUSTAINABILITY

Orders are delivered in a locally made recycled cardboard box, with recycled tissue paper and paper packing tape.

This is the best balance I've found between protecting your bag and reducing impact on the environment.

The only plastic used is the Express Post tape from Australia Post (though looking for alternatives).

DELIVERY FOR MOTHERS DAY

To ensure your order arrives in time for Mothers Day orders for bags that need to be sewn need to be placed by Wednesday 1st May.

Bags marked as ALREADY SEWN on the website can be ordered up to Wednesday 8th May and will be sent by Express Post so they arrive in time.

I'll also be taking part in the Big Vegan Market over the weekend of Mothers Day you can also purchase a bag in person if you're in Melbourne.

If you're not sure which fabric to choose you can also order a GIFTTT VOUCHER right up to Saturday 11th May.

PRICING TRANSPARENCY

In a world where profits are made at the expense of sustainability, local business, ethics and quality, I'm doing my part to move towards a new standard of business transparency.

That is why I now provide the cost of every element that directly contributes to making my bags.
