Introduction

Solahanpu is a Japanese design studio that designs and produces, bags, wallets, accessories, and other items. Our products are created using superior quality canvas that is coated with a special paraffin wax that creates a leather-like texture. We had a successful campaign of this product in Japan, and this time we have made several changes from the previous version.

Changes from the previous

1: The shoulder belt which is connected to main body side in the video has been moved to lid side due to more convenient to open the lid.

2: The "Brown" color in the video has been replaced with "Green", which is more like army green.

3:  The updated version has a pocket which is separated into 3 sections by stitching lines as below image, whereas the previous version had no stitching lines to separate sections. Gray area indicates pockets, red lines indicate stitching lines in the image.

Description 

Baksteen is a minimalistic crossbody bag designed and manufactured by Solahanpu. The external layer of the bag is made of canvass material while the internal layer is made of the water-proof material called tarpaulin. Baksteen's zipper is placed hidden right behind your back, making it impossible to open without your knowledge. You have probably noticed that any crossbody bags or messenger bags tend to swing toward your side when riding a bike. The mini-strap comes with Baksteen prevents the annoying swing from happening ever again. There are two pockets inside Baksteen; one is behind the opening lid, the other is in the main compartment. Internal pockets are divided into 3 sections. Baksteen means a "brick" in Dutch.
