The bag is very functional and a great daily commuter, it features: padded laptop compartment + removable bumpers, luggage trolley handle pass-through, front zipper pocket with built-in organizer, removable padded shoulder strap + stabilizer system, woven Cham lining, and of course, can be paired with your favorite THREAD! It is the detachable "Threads" that make their bags so distinct and beautiful, they are interchangeable and can be sold as separate pieces. Ethnotek also have a new travel blog worth checking, it is an attempt to increase transparency between Ethnotek customers and villagers that create the "Threads" for the bags. The blog gives you a detailed look into the lives, techniques and just how much goes into Ethnotek bags. Have a look at the video after the jump, it introduces the artisans and gives an inside look into the intricate weaving techniques that create their colorful THREADS.
