Introducing The Maker's Bag

Ask ten different people to make something, and no two results will be the same. You might get a poem, a painting, a staff of music or a circuit board—maybe even an elegant mathematical equation or a stencil for a tattoo. Even if everyone was instructed to doodle a bear riding a unicycle up the side of Big Ben, each person's rendering would be unique.

We are all driven to make, create, think, and dream. However you choose to express yourself, if your imaginative work and play requires you to carry around the tools of your trade, then the Maker’s Bag has been made in your honor.

Originally conceived as a messenger-style bag for knitters, the design of the Maker’s Bag lends itself well to a whole host of creative pursuits. Beneath its appealingly simple exterior lies a wealth of organizational elements: with twelve compartments and pockets, there’s certainly a place for everything; if you don’t need every nook and cranny, the pockets’ lean profiles allow them to keep out of your way.

The Maker’s Bag can be worn cross-body or on your shoulder. It includes a padded Standard Shoulder Strap and a detachable waist belt that keeps the bag secure if you’re riding a bicycle or running to catch the last train. Open the top flap and you’ll find a zippered pocket that’s loaded with slots for knitting needles, tools of various sizes, pens or brushes, as well as enough space to hold other items you may want to access quickly. Because of its external piping, the Maker's Bag has enough structure to stand upright without being held open.

The spacious main compartment can accommodate laptops up to 13”, and has five organizational pockets (two of which are constructed of expandable mesh and can hold a water bottle or travel mug) as well as a wide zippered pocket with room for an 11” laptop, a tablet, a pad of paper, magazine, or knitting patterns. Plus, there’s tons of open space left over to store yarn, books, or a sizeable lunch.

Want to add even more pockets and organization to your Maker’s Bag? Consider adding the Maker’s Bag Freudian Slip. It adds five additional pockets of organization—three zippered pockets on one side and two large open top pockets on the other. Available for order from the Maker’s Bag page, the Freudian Slip Page, or (because it also fits the Swift) from the Swift page.

Made of rough and ready 1050D ballistic nylon or 400D Dyneema/420D ripstop nylon and with its understated good looks, the Maker’s Bag is an agreeable travel companion, at home in the city or country, and will hold all of the stuff you need to make whatever you love.

Like the new bag, but I thought knitting died out years ago with my late Grandmother.
