One of the first bags we made for .retool. was our vegan Weekend Tote Bag. It’s made of 1000D nylon and has interior and exterior slip pockets and a magnetic snap closure. It works great for a quick weekend getaway, a trip to the store, or even for carrying your daily essentials Here are a couple of photos (click to enlarge).

We’ve tweaked the design and are working on a small batch of them to bring along to upcoming shows. Next up are the Glen Park Festival in April and Maker Faire in May.

Here’s a rundown of the changes.

New lining material: We’re now using 4oz. pack cloth (commonly used in backpacks) for the lining.  It’s light and durable, two things we like.

Pockets: We replaced the interior slip pocket with a  zipper pocket in the lining.  We added a zipper to the pocket on the front of the bag as well.

Hardware: We switched over to hidden magnetic snaps (they are strong!), changed the hardware from plastic to metal, and added a clip for keys.

It probably would have easier to list what we haven’t changed!

At any rate, we’re having fun with new color combinations and are looking forward to debuting the bags at San Francisco’s Glen Park Festival on Sunday, April 27 from 10 – 4:30pm.
