The marmite of the bag world: The fanny pack, the bum bag, the bag that is awesomely functional but struggles to be beautiful. Until now.
Feast your peeks on these beauties: Made by Ashya, a Brooklyn based design label who wanted to produce an unconventional and reimagined look for a luxury bag.
Bumbags have always had a place in my heart – I possess two – but high on the lust list has been a leather utility styled version with a masculine edge: These tick that long sought for box.
The company takes it’s eco credentials seriously – the bags are produced locally in NYC’s garment district, as is the hardware used.

They’re not a cheap option, but that’s the incentive of buy less, buy better. This is an investment that will just get better with age.
Which has to be a good thing.
