Freitag began making bags in 1993 from used truck tarpaulins, discarded bicycle inner tubes and car seat belts, resulting in beautiful, graphically unique backpacks. Brompton began building folding bike for urban transport and more in 1976. These two brands worked together recently on a backpack that attaches to the Brompton and we think it’s pretty dang slick. See the full drop and all the info at Brompton.
Freitag has made a name for itself by recycling old transport truck tarpaulins into everyday bags, a creative and at the time, innovative way of adaptive reuse. Now, their newest innovation pushes the envelope even further with Zippelin, an inflatable travel bag, freshly launched, yet already wildly popular on Kickstarter. Personally, I’ve never seen anything like it.
