13 Macbook Air Cement Laptop Messenger Bag - Red

 

I've been searching for a suitable messenger style laptop bag for my new 13" Macbook Air, and my search has taken me all over the place. There are some lovely bags around, from: leather, canvas, nylon and even various recycled materials. Here are a few I've favourited on Etsy: http://etsy.me/1aFQzaJ

One the most well known companies using recycled materials, I guess, would be freitag.ch, there is also elvisandkresse.com, who makes fashion items from recycled fire hoses, which is pretty cool.

Although I've checked 100's of laptop messenger bags, there have been only a handful that I really feel suit my style, and would be happy enough to hold my Macbook Air.

Etsy

Etsy is a great place to find all sorts of treasures, and I have ended up buying numerous camera cases, phone cases and other things over the last few years. Etsy again came up trumps for a suitable bag in the form of this fantastic recycled / repurposed Cement bag made by The Wren. It's almost as though the design of these cement bags was done with the messenger bags in mind, as they just seem to look so perfect.

If you visit the The Wren's website you'll see a whole range of: bags, sleeves, cases all made from the same Pretoria Portland Cement paper bags.

I'm ordering the 13" Black with red highlights, can't wait! There's so much to love about these cement bag bags: the bold and striking graphics, the typography, the icons and symbols, the colour use, the snug padded fit for your much cherished laptop, the simple fact these are bloody cement bags!

I'll give a review once I have received and used my own, and will likely offer up a few of these in an upcoming giveaway. So make sure you are receiving my blog newsletter so you don't miss out!
