Nifty, Gifty: Bold Bags from Carga

In a world overflowing with bags, we’ve found a new favorite in Carga. The New York-based company’s rugged totes and gadget cases–standouts at the most recent New York International Gift Fair–are produced in a family-run workshop in Buenos Aires, Argentina using a pattern-free “zero-wastage” process: each one is made from single strips of material (felt, leather, industrial-grade canvas) cut from side to side of a roll, without any further trimming. Meanwhile, the striking lines of each Carga creation come thanks to founder Mauro Bianucci, who trained as an architect at the University of Buenos Aires before turning his sharp eye to accessories.

This is part of a series of elegantly wrapped December posts about desirable goods that we suggest you purchase with the laudable yet vague intent of giving to others and then keep for yourself. Got a “nifty, gifty” idea? Tell the UnBeige elves: unbeige (at) mediabistro.com
