Our newest admiration for form and felt… Carga Bags. The recycled felt bags come in three models and seem a perfect choice for laptop, briefcase or carryall tote. Designer Mauro Bianucci hand crafted the first bag for himself out of industrial wool felt left over from a previous project. The bag caught the eye of a client who ordered a few, and soon a collection was formed. The bags are currently hand assembled in Buenos Aires, using recycled industrial felt sourced in Brazil. Instead of brand logos, all bags come with a serial number hand embossed on a discreet disc allowing the design to speak for itself.

    Can you tell me where I can get a 20″ one for my large laptop. I love my standard size.

    Hi Mindy,

    I have written about these bags more than once and have been on the site several times. I must say that I have never had trouble with the site.

    If you cannot access the site, which lists points of sale, then you can contact the company directly. I have been in touch with the designer and he is more than happy to arrange shipment of a bag anywhere that they may not be available.

    Feel free to contact him here:

    info@cargabags.com

    good luck,

    Jill

    p.s. I love my Carga and so does almost everybody who sees me carrying it.

    There’s also some nice bags designed by Kathryn Walter made of renewable recycled felt fiber.
