Surely you’ve seen them: slouchy women’s handbags, made out of leather or fur and trimmed with odd printed fabric, buckles, zippers, beads, and fringe. Maybe you’ve wondered what exactly the inspiration was behind those designs. Wonder no longer — Radar Magazine has uncovered the trend behind the latest group of designer purses.
We’ve teamed up with Jake Luddington of MediaBlab to give one each of the The Aeronaut Maximum Carry-On Bag, The Super Ego Messenger Bag, and The Brain Bag Backpack away to readers of Jake’s “Jake Luddington’s Digital Lifestyle” newsletter and MediaBlab web site.
On the Giveaway page, you’ll also find a video of Jake in our Seattle Factory Showroom giving you a walk-through of the features of each bag. A video walk-through like Jake’s at MediaBlab or the Gearlive/Bleeding Edge “A Visit to Tom Bihn” video is the next best thing to seeing a Tom Bihn bag in person.
The Animal Acres Gala is an event celebrating the 20 years rescuing and protecting of farmed animals by Farm Sanctuary and Animal Acres. For more information on the Gala or to purchase tickets, visit the Animal Acres Events Page. Enjoy yummy vegan food, bid on some great Tom Bihn bags and other auction items, meet celebs such as Charlize Theron, Jorja Fox, and Bill Maher, and support a great cause.
Animal Acres is a farmed animal sanctuary and compassionate living center located just 45 minutes from Los Angeles.
Animal Acres works to promote compassionate living through its farmed animal rescue and refuge efforts, public education and outreach, and advocacy projects to prevent cruelty to farmed animals.
Even if you’re not a vegetarian, you might agree that improvements are needed in how farm animals are treated (even Gordon Ramsay agrees with that). For more information on the work of Animal Acres and Farm Sanctuary, visit their Web sites:

You’ve asked for them, and here they are — new, improved pictures of the Freudian Slip.
The Freudian Slip is made to fit inside either the Brain Bag, the Smart Alec, or your current daypack. One side has organizer pockets for your pens, PDA, cell phone, or any small electronics. The other keeps your files and folders neat and protected. It provides otal organization.
We’ll be adding more new pictures of our bags every other week, so stay tuned.
The Empire Builder briefcase will be in-stock and ready to ship by May 5th.
The Empire Builder briefcase is the result of three years of product development and 30 years of bag building experience. It is uniquely styled, superbly functional, and built to endure years of abuse.
If you’re interested in the Empire Builder, we suggest you order one now. Even when the Empire Builder is backordered it can sell out, and this time it has — in color combination Black/Steel/Steel. All other colors are available, but the Empire Builder is a popular bag and we will be sold out again soon.
