I love me a good story. And well designed accessories for my pretty little gadgets. It is for these reasons that you absolutely have to check out Veltwerk.
Veltwerk is ‘a range of handcrafted backpacks, clutch bags, laptop/iPad sleeves, satchels and lifestyle accessories designed with the discerning urban commuter in mind’. Their products are produced from locally sourced, vegetable-dyed leather and imported luxury felt. They look and feel so damn good!
And here’s the story: Each bag in the range tells a story and has been named after a famous field worker. These individuals contributed a wealth of knowledge to his/her field of study by immersing themselves in their subject and doing the exhaustive legwork required for in-depth research.

They’re too gorgeous. I feel I need to ride through the streets of Cape Town on an old bicycle with flowers in the basket, don’t you?
It gets a hearty high five from me (and a cheesy grin, apparently).
