20th of december: The original Kasperi, in blackRegular price €355,00
From the archives, the last original Kasperi
Meet the Original Kasperi. The Kasperi Shoulder Bag was born out of a need for the ultimate bag for urban mobility. The bag needed to fit everything you might need for a daily trip to work, workout and to the shop after. It should do that while being over-packable to the extent that it could stretch for a compact weekender. It had to look sharp yet subtle, dashing through both casual or formal situations with ease. But most of all it needed to be comfortable and convenient to wear and use every day.

The original and the first KASPERI
To get where we wanted to, we rethought many of the details and functions of a day-to-day bag. At Kasperi we are all enthusiastic advocates of commute by bicycle. That’s why we added a stabiliser strap that secures the bag in your back at all times while riding a bike. It needed to be easy and fast to adjust the length of the shoulder strap, an airplane style quick release buckle would get the job done. For when it gets dark, the back of the bag features a subtle belt clip to accommodate a bicycle rear light. However perhaps the most important design detail was born when we used other bags, and realised it can be hard to reach something out of a shoulder bag with one hand. We looked into it and ended up designing an L-buckle unique to Kasperi. The wearer is be able to open, and most importantly to close it on the go. One fluid motion is enough to reach for something quick without dismantling the bag.
These are features, that might exist in a technical messenger bag. Yet what makes Kasperi unique is that we make our bags from a material that gets more beautiful and personal the more you use it. The Vegetable-tanned bovine surface leather is developed specifically for our bags. The tanning gives it a unique texture and beautiful ageing qualities, while using surface leather doesn't hide the occasional scars leather is bound to have. Each of the bags is different and will live a life of its own with their respective owners. And how often can you get something so personal, made so close.
