Calgary based Mother Co. recently did some fine tuning to their messenger, briefcase, backpack and weekender (shown). Along with some design tweaks, they also upgraded their fabrics, making them waterproof and stain resistant. Pair that with their limited lifetime warranty and you will be able to hold onto their products just like you would with an old friend - damn near forever.
One of our favorite local suppliers, Mother Co., manufactures the Forge Collection of bags right here in Calgary. The messenger bag shown above, is made of waxed canvas and leather accents. Easily accommodates your laptop as well as a tablet, cellphone, and a sandwich or two. It's a stylish way to get from point A to point B - even if you have a few stops in-between.
