About

 The shopping trolley is back and better than ever. Imagine not having to carry your heavy stuff all over the city. Imagine being able to extend your shopping spree, since you now have a bag to carry it all. And imagine being able to significantly reduce plastic waste while doing it. Introducing: BOW - Bag on Wheels.

Now or Never ! Choose from our entire collection bags and frames (white, black, dark green) with the BOW Now or Never Deal for only €75!

    

Let’s be honest: we all secretly know those shopping trolleys are just really convenient.We took the shopping trolley and made it better. Way better. Not only did we make sure the designs makes you look twice, we made them even more useful by adding more storage space, a hood that will stay upright when you need it to and better wheels for a smoother ride.  

Reducing plastic waste. While the design will make you retro-hip and surprisingly mobile, you will also do your part in reducing plastic waste. Worldwide we are using approximately one trillion plastic bags a year. It takes the environment 1000 years to break down one plastic bag. 

You are unique, so your bag should be too.That’s why we’ve made it possible to mix and match your favorite bags and frames to create the perfect BOW. 

BOW - Canvas collection

The BOW Canvas collection comes in four different styles: Berlin, Amsterdam, London and Kyoto. 

BOW - Fashion collection 

The BOW Fashion collection comes in seven different styles: Singapore, Madrid, Stockholm, Dublin, Rome, New York and Moscow. 

BOW - Luxury collection  

The BOW Luxury collection comes in four different styles: Tokyo, Paris, Munich and Brussel. 

BOW - Frame colors 

Our super stylish and robust frames comes in three different colors: Black, White and Dark Green. 

BOW offers high quality bags that are very convenient in use and well designed. Using only durable high-quality materials and offering a wide range of designer bag and colors to choose from. We spend many hours and prototypes to find the ultimate shape for the bag, so it fits seamless with our frame design.

The BOW bag is a great way to carry your stuff around town. The hood of our bag has a clever opening to the other side which gives you easy access to the bag. There are also extra functional pockets for some of your smaller belongings. The bag has clever pockets on the inside for your laptop or iPad. As an option we also designed a smart cooling bag, so you can keep your drinks cool on a hot day.

  • Drawstring closure on the inside. Keeps your stuff safe and protected.
  • Padded laptop / iPad compartment.
  • Easy to use side pockets for everyday items. 
  • Inside pouch with a zipper for your valuables.
  • Fast access front compartment with zipper for small items.
  • Clever hood opening for fast and easy access.  
  • Hood with intuitive magnetic closure.
  • As an option we also designed a smart cooling bag so you can keep your drinks cool on a hot day.

The BOW bag has 40 liters of storage space for your everyday items.

It’s easy to attach the bag to the frame and switch bags to your liking.

 The BOW has a unique one-piece stylish frame, giving the BOW beautiful curves and a strong character. The frame is made from Polypropylene combined with gas-injection ensuring it’s strong, light and urban proof. 

 We spent a lot of time designing the ultimate one-piece frame. We created a perfectly balanced frame with a very comfortable grip.

We did extensive testing to optimize the impact strength of our frame, so it can survive the demanding urban environments. And made the frame super robust in the process.

 We want to produce high-quality products that we are proud of. We took great care that all parts that wear-out can be easily replaced and that the frame is made from high quality PP that is fully recyclable.

The BOW is equipped with wheels and bearings found in inline skating, ensuring a smooth and fast ride. We tuned the compound together with the manufacture till we had the ultimate combination of comfort and speed.

Each BOW Frame is manufactured in our partner factory in the Netherlands and each BOW Bag is manufactured in our partner factory in China.

BOW is a cooperation of Dutch designers, entrepreneurs and stylists that love to make physical products better and more beautiful. That’s why we designed the BOW, a bag on wheels you want to be seen with: bold, simple, adventurous, fashionable, open minded, respectful, unique, stylish and aesthetic.

We hope to raise the funds to startup the tooling for production. But the Kickstarter campaign is about far more than funding. It’s also about experimentation and collaboration. So, we couldn’t think of a better place to connect with our community and get this innovative product off the ground together!

Here is our estimated timeline from the launch of the campaign until we start production and you get your BOW!

Thank you all for taking your time to view this project. We hope that you are as passionate and excited as we are about the BOW – Bag on Wheels. Please spread the word and share this project with your friends and loved ones. Thanks for your support!
