Introducing the Notabag – the bag that converts into a backpack from Frankfurt, Germany


Notabag is a smart combination of a bag and a backpack. With a single pull on the straps, it transforms itself from a sleek eco-friendly reusable bag to an easy-to-carry backpack. Its versatility allows you to carry it in your hands as well as comfortably on your shoulders. We’re so excited to be the first Australian retailer of the Notabag!


The Notabag idea was born during Adnan Alicusic’s trip to the local farmers market. It was one of those situations that we can all identify with – the grocery bag filled up very quickly and he still had to ride his bike home.

Things got pretty tricky once he found himself in the middle of busy city traffic, trying to manoeuvre a bike with a heavy shopping bag on the handlebar, bumping against the front wheel. At that moment, he started visualising how a simple bag could be transformed into a backpack.

After spending months of prototyping and testing, Adnan and his friend and fashion designer Ilaria Gregianin, introduced a smart way to combine a bag and a backpack as a Kickstarter project. The Notabag even folds up into a small pocket for those times when you need a bag unexpectedly!


It is made in Europe from cotton and rip-stop nylon. The fabric provides the product with sturdiness and soft touch of cotton fabric, yet it is still lightweight and water-resistant like the rip-stop nylon.

Notabag has been nominated for a German design award and ranked as Frankfurt’s Top 10 startups in 2015. They recently collaborated with Swedish bike brand Bookman to make a reflective Notabag especially for cyclists. We think you’ll love it as much as we do!

Interview with Sara Henrichs from Hendrichs UK

It's Rude to Stare - Google Chrome 19022015 75445 PM.bmp

Sara Henrichs, the founder of reflective fashion collection Henrichs, spoke to online magazine  ‘It’s Rude to Stare’ about her inspirations.

Who do you design for? Are you inspired by a certain personality / look when coming up with ideas?

I design for style-conscious urban citizens who want to look good while travelling by bicycle or scooter but don’t want to wear the ugly yellow hi-vis vests. The idea is to be able to do this through a Henrichs garments, they can wear this over what they would normally wear, so it’s practical, safer and still looks good. The cape for instance is my flagship product and the reason why I launched Henrichs.

When I was a fashion student in Paris I was fascinated by the Schoeller reflective material and designed the cape for myself to cycle with. Since then I had so many people asking me where I got it from so I decided to produce it and the rest is history!

Are you a keen cyclist?
Yes, I always cycle it’s the best transport way in cities nowadays!

Describe your personal style?
I am a chic french girl with a practical german touch.

Roscoe Crossbody Bag – the Perfect Day Trip Travel Bag

The Roscoe Crossbody bag is not just great for cyclists – it is fantastic as a day trip, sightseeing bag for travellers.

Maria Boustead, the founder of Po Campo, designed the Roscoe Crossbody after realising that there was no bag in their line that would be perfect for sight-seeing. You know, a slim profile to move through crowds, hideaway pockets to stow important documents, space for things you need throughout the day.

During a recent vacation to Turkey, she used the bag daily, and loved it! 

Here’s why:

  • It packs flat in a backpack or suitcase
  • You can easily fit in a wallet, guidebook, sunglasses, Kindle, notebook and a small bottle of water;
  • >The front pocket provides easy access to street maps and the inside zippered pocket is good for hiding big bills and/or passport;
  • The key fob works for making sure no hotel keys are misplaced;
  • Having such a flat bag is good for crowded trains or marketplaces. The main zipper is “submerged” which makes it less obvious how to get into it.
