Unsere neuen Laptop Taschen

South Africa >> April 2011

Size: 13" & 15"

Behind every bag there is a desire, a sharing, long hours of washing, burning, varnishing, stitching. Choosing the laptop bags sizes, pushing the green touch further (they are 98% recycled), designing a functional, beautiful, sexy cover that will be resistant, easy to carry and slide into your (bigger) GIVE IT BAG was a real journey. And voila! The Laptop bags 13’’ and 15’’ have all the ingredients one would have dreamed of plus an extra argument on the tag: R349 for the Small Laptop Bag, R379 for the large one. It’s here, it’s hot off the design table and it’s waiting for you!

Album Launch

It was a warm night in Cape Town. And it was even warmer at Zula Bar, Long Street. The place was jammed and the stage was set. High heels, cool hoodies, baggy pants and skinny tiny skirts crowded the room. Blacks, whites and coloured faces, laughter, hip-moves and wild kisses, everybody was waiting for the live music to start. Blu & Exile from Los Angeles, landed in the Mother City for one night of absolute Hip Hop music. In first part of the concert, a South African Hip Hop celebrity, Mingus (a.k.a. X the 24th Letter) walked on stage, a GIVE IT BAG Red Horse on his side, ready to heat up the show. And Oh Boy, he did! With his amazing energy, strong writing, a voice impeccably singing his frustrations and views on life, Mingus absolutely rocked the room. On stage, behind the mic, there was an incredible artist and his rather stunning GIVE IT BAG!
Mingus will be releasing his second album “Beneath the Underdog” very soon. Check out his page for more info:
