This project was inspired by all the countless unnecessary plastic bags we've received every time we go shopping. Unable to find high quality reusable lightweight bags suitable to carry in our pockets, we decided to create the Nanobag.

The Nanobag does not take up much space in your pocket

Key features:

  • Light - Weighs only 1/2 once (14 grams)
  • Strong - Carries 50 pounds (22,7 kg)
  • Portable - Fits in the watch pocket of your jeans
  • Thin - Measures 0.002 inches (0.05 mm)
  • Durable ripstop nylon polymer
  • Waterproof nano coating
  • Packs into small case

Our Kickstarter backers get FREE international shipping.

We consume somewhere between 1 trillion to 500 billion of plastic bags per year, and it’s an unnecessary waste. With the "carry everywhere" Nanobag it's finally easy to carry a bag at all times. 

We're committed to creating made-to-last quality products. The Nanobag is made with the best lightweight ultra-high-performance materials we could find.

A carbon neutral bag 

We consider the Nanobag an environmentally conscious product, as it contains less materials than its competitors and reduces plastic bag consumption. In addition we'd like to offset the CO2 that is emitted from the production of the raw materials, stitching and shipping of the Nanobag. To do so we will plant mangrove trees in Myanmar with Worldview International Foundation. Mangrove trees are one of the most effective tools to bind CO2 to the soil and prevent it from escaping into the atmosphere. It's 10 times more effective than most other tree species. In addition they help sustain coastal ecosystems and prevent soil erosion.

Your support

Now that we have our prototype ready we need your support. The funds we raise here will go towards ordering the fabric, stitching of the bag as well as logistics. Our Kickstarter backers will be the first to have the Nanobag in hand. We can't do this without you guys. Thank you for taking the time to check out our project.

The team

Tiptop Things are a group of friends working together to optimize our every day lives. We want to push the envelope and improve on the things that surround us. Our goal is to deliver quality products that you will love. We also factor in the environment in everything we do.

Risks and challenges

Over the past few months we've been developing the Nanobag prototype and discussing production with our manufacturers. Once we are funded we will work closely with our manufacturer throughout production to ensue that the Nanobag is of the high quality we expect it to be. We've planned everything thoroughly and given ourselves ample time to finish the production, so we are confident that we can do this. As with every project, there can always be unforeseen things happening along the way. There might also be minor changes to the product as we get input from the community on the way. We promise that we will keep you updated every step of the journey, and be 100% transparent.
