LUX is as you like it: a sophisticated tote, an elegant laptop
carrier, or a chic diaper bag.
A customizable bag with optional zip-in inserts, the LUX is a tote bag
with graceful curves and streamlined design. There are no outside pockets or
zippers to distract from its clean lines. The padded handles are easy on
the hands, and the straps are the right length to ride comfortably on
the shoulder. A zippered inside pocket is sized to fit wallet,
checkbook, and/or iPod, and has two points to attach a key snap
(included). The inside bottom of the LUX features a separating zipper
that allows you to zip in one of our still-in-development optional
inserts to customize the function of the LUX to suit your needs. Of
course, without any insert, the LUX is still an easy-on-the-eyes and
ever-so-useful bag for town and market. The LUX is $50.00 and is available
for pre-order now with a ship date of late September. Inserts for the LUX
will be available in late September.
Planned inserts include:
The Parental Unit:
A diaper bag insert designed and tested by parents.
No bunnies or teddy bears, just clean lines, tough materials and
A padded insert for your 12 laptop, as well as
accessories, a few files, and maybe even lunch.
When we decided to make a knitting insert for the LUX,
we turned to our friends at Knitty Magazine for their input,
and that’s how the the Knitty/Tom Bihn contest came to be.
Visit Knitty.com to fill out the survey on the LUX knitting bag insert.
Should it have three pockets or five? What colors would you like to see
it in? You tell us through the survey and we’ll make the knitting bag
of your dreams. When you fill out and submit the survey, you’ll be
entered in the contest.
The Grand Prize (1) is 1 LUX tote with knitting insert and a $100 TOM
BIHN gift certificate. (Approximate value of prize is $200.00). 2nd and
3rd place prizes (1 each): 1 LUX tote with knitting insert.
