The Pack Bag collection is a line of unique bags inspired by the packaging of objects unrelated to the fashion world, such as paper boxes used to carry sweets. Food containers become bags and backpacks, with linear and minimal shapes, pale and delicate colours.

The influence of Swedish design is recognisable both in the names of the bags and the graphics used for the brochures, which immediately remind those of the famous Swedish furniture factory. At the moment, the collection is made up of 4 versatile and extremely original pieces: Blåbär is the leather bag with an adjustable and detachable shoulder-strap, Kärt is the rigid leather backpack, Sötsak is the handbag with a geometric shape, Äppelpaj is the mini bucket bag with adjustable and removable shoulder-strap.

The accessories are all handmade, enriched by brass details with gold plating, base studs and customised closures that make each creation unique. Each bag is completely made in Italy and handcrafted using only high quality leathers.

Pack Bags are small icons of contemporary Made in Italy, examples of an brilliant and ironic design.
