Five bags launch in the initial lineup
Danish design company Threads has launched its first line of designer notebook bags, with designs focused on simplicity and a maintaining a positive economic impact. The bags are produced in small-scale factories located in South Korea, with hand-stitching completed in Vietnam. The new products include the Journalcase, Shouldercase, Grannybag and Natural.
The Journalcase ($340) features a leather design with a foam inner layer for protection, and is available in different sizes for 13- and 15-inch notebooks. The Sholdercase ($320) is similar to the Jornalcase, but hung vertically with a magnetically attached closing mechanism. It also ships in 13- and 15-inch sizes.
The Grannybag ($160) is a hand-knotted vertical shoulder bag made from recycled materials and available in one size for notebooks up to 15-inches. The Natural ($120) is a four-sided flip-sleeve notebook wrap made from environmentally friendly foam for the liner and cotton for the exterior. It is available in 13- and 15-inch sizes. The last bag is the Neoprene ($75), a notebook sleeve made of double-bond water-resistant neoprene that comes in 13- and 15-inch sizes.
