NOORDERMARKT OFFICE BAGS

Strictly business and casual smart.

THE NOORDERMARKT OFFICE BAG

The office bag is named after the Noordermarkt in Amsterdam. The Noordermarkt is one of our all-time favourites markets, especially on the weekend. On Saturdays, this market hosts the best organic food stalls and features farmers’ produce and fresh local bread. On Monday however, you can find anything fabric related here – it’s vintage hunter’s heaven.

CURIOUS HOW WE DO IT?

So the office bag is handmade and locally produced. But how? You may be wondering. Well, after the market stall covers have been washed and scrubbed, they’re cut into shape using custom made patterns. They are then sown together by one of our (very gifted) seamstresses. Maartje, a former costume designer, is one of them. From her studio on the outskirts of the city, she’s been making UNBEGUN bags for several years now. Read her story in How it’s made.
