FREITAG X BROMPTON: A New Spin On Backpacks

- Advertisement -

FREITAG X and Brompton just put a new spin on backpacks

Brompton’s friends at FREITAG X are the masters of making bags. It all started in 1993, when graphic designers Markus and Daniel Freitag developed a messenger bag from used truck tarpaulins, discarded bicycle inner tubes and car seat belts; giving birth to their brand and bags – each one recycled, each one unique.

Fast forward to today, and the brand’s philosophy has never been more important: think and act in cycles. We couldn’t agree more.

So it seemed silly for Brompton not to team up with them to work on new solutions for urban mobility. A collaboration, with what they both think is important at its heart; thinking and acting in cycles, quality, functionality, and of course, riding bikes.

The result? A FREITAG bag that now clips on to the front of a Brompton folding bike, where it fits and functions as perfectly as it does in its more usual place. Namely, on your back.

Available now on: FREITAG.CH
