I) PRODUCT PRESENTATION

Babylon Road - a new brand created by two French designers - is proud to present exclusively on Kickstarter, its first collection.

Our first backpack collection was made with the concept of a removable front pocket.

Once unlocked, you can use the front pocket on its own whether as a purse or a handbag. The bag comes with a very elegant strap that can be used as a handle for the front pocket or for your camera.  

Often merely seen as a functional product by the industry, the backpack is rarely thought of as a qualitative and creative design artifact.

As product designers we believe that a backpack is an essential day-to-day piece of clothing, and must be considered as a refined item of fashion.

Babylon Road’s backpacks are made of canvas cotton and suede leather. Our bags are both urban and chic, and suit perfectly the city's environment and lifestyle.

Our first collection comprises four model colors: black, beige, khaki and blue. There are two available designs: the Concept backpack with its removable front pocket or the Classic design with a fixed front pocket.

CLASSIC BACKPACK : Non Removable Pocket

The model classic backpack has the same design, colors and qualities as the Concept bag with its removable pocket, the only difference being that the front pocket cannot be used separately. 

CANVAS BAG : 

With its black cotton and white ropes, it's a resistant and high capacity bag that can be used like a gym-bag, beach or shopping-bag.

II) HOW DOES IT WORK

1- REMOVABLE POCKET

We created a system, which allows you to easily and safely unlock the front pocket of your backpack. We combined two turnstiles and four magnetic buttons to create our removable mechanism. Thus, you just have to twist both turnstiles to unlock the pocket and remove it safely. 

2- COLOR COMBINATIONS

If you own several pockets, you can change the color of the front pocket and personalize your bag to your wish according to your outfit or your mood of the day.

3- DUAL USE STRAP 

You can use the pocket by itself as a purse or a handbag as it comes with its own strap. 

This strap can also be used with your camera (Canon/Nikon/ other device). Wanna see how? Watch the video on the 4th minute.

4- COMPARTMENTS

Our bag was designed for modern day urban activities. Resistant and useful, our bags comprise various compartments for your computer and tablet and many pockets for all your belongings.

SIZE :

42.5cm / height

28.5cm / length

13cm / width

Our backpack can fit a Macbook 13 and 15 inches. The front pocket can fit an Ipad mini. There is a pocket on the back for a regular size ipad and side pockets for your smarthphone. 

BABYLON ROAD's TALISMAN : From our logo we created a symbolic object.  More than being our tool to mark our bags, this item is a talisman with a strong symbolic value. It is available in one of our premium pledge.

III) HOW TO GET IT

1. COLOR SELECTION PROCESS

Please send an email to contact@babylonroad after order to select your color.

IV) ABOUT US :

1) ABOUT THE PROJECT

As a new brand, Babylon Road chose Kickstarter to help us start our activity. The fund obtained  will be used to launch the first production campaign.

If the campaign is successful, we will be able to manufacture our product and open an online shop to sell our products. We are already thinking about the second collection, and hope to be able to design innovative and beautiful products for our customers and run our brand creatively and smoothly. 

2) PRODUCTION :

The production of our products was a continuous process and collaboration between ourselves- the designers- , our workshop in Paris and our manufacturing factory in Jakarta. 

We have had four prototypes of this bag before we could proudly show you the final version. 

                                

Risks and challenges

We are delighted with the results; our factory is very reliable and worked meticulously on each of our bags.
We chose the best quality to ensure the best strength and feel of our product. All the materials -cotton, nubuck and hardware - have already been sent to the factory and are only waiting for your orders to be made.

We have already fixed according to our business plan the production plan for our first collection with the minimum and maximum bags to be produced.

Shipping:

Knowing that Kickstarter projects often deal with delay in delivery, we will make everything we can for your orders to be shipped on time. We will keep you updated about any information regarding our products and your order via email and/or facebook.
We are only missing the initial funding that will help us start the production.
Please support us on Kickstarter to make this project a reality!
