Notabag Transforming Tote - Hello World Blue

Notabag Original is a smart combination of a bag and a backpack. With a pull on the straps, it transforms from a reusable bag to a backpack. When it is not in use, it folds into its own pocket.

The new blue Hello World pattern by The City Works features many landmarks from different cities around the world. The Eiffel Tower, Colosseum, Taj Mahal, and Sydney Opera House are just a few of the many icons hidden within the detailed design.

Notabag is made entirely without any additional features such as buttons, zips or Velcro.

Simple minimal design - maximum versatility.

“The Notabag idea was born during a trip to the local farmers market. It was one of those situations that many can identify with: the grocery bag filled up very quickly and I still had to ride my bike home. 

Things got pretty tricky once I found myself in the middle of busy city traffic. I was trying to manoeuvre my bike while having a heavy shopping bag on my handlebar bumping against the front wheel. I couldn’t help but wish that I had my backpack with me, or that at least I could carry my shopping bag over the shoulders. At that moment, I started visualising how a simple bag could be transformed into a backpack.”
