Best Work Messenger - Bedouin Barbary

Luxe yet hardcore. Trad yet innovative. The Barbary somehow has it all

Bedouin somehow manage both a luxury feel and a hardcore vibe. They get traditional fabrics to feel fresh and innovative. They get that whole British thing of looking interesting and quirky in a way that you really want to get to know. And the Barbary is a prime example of this Bedouin charisma.

British heritage portaging label Bedouin has teamed up with Japanese retailer BEAMS for this limited-edition tote bag.

I’ve been testing Bedouin’s Barbary messenger bag now for 5 months. This bag has hauled more groceries than the first wife of Feodor Vassilyev. This bag has transported more beers than all four Bernstein brothers, combined. This bag has been to more outdoor concerts than Ben Dorsey. And it’s only just starting to get broken in.

I love this bag.

Upon my initial discovery of Bedouin, I was immediately pulled in. Their story, their craft, and the style of their products had me wanting to learn more. I know it’s wordy, and taken directly from their site, but I’m posting it here as an introduction to Bedouin, as I couldn’t describe their brand any better than they can themselves…

Bedouin is different. Founded by Silas Grant, it’s a London based accessories company, making everything in a Lincolnshire factory. Like most things worth the money, it costs a little more.

Such positive creative moves have allowed makers such as Bedouin the opportunity to express themselves even more, facilitating a push onto the boundaries of typical luggage. Men should not be restricted to a set piece of luggage, our gender should not mean we're intrinsically linked with a backpack or briefcase, and it's so positive to see labels understanding this, as Bedouin having stunningly demonstrated with their SS11 collection.

Apart from being robust and designed to last the bags are flawless aesthetically. Using the finest heavy weight canvas & leathers, riri zippers, automotive standard webbing to create bags that have a sophisticated appeal, while the hand printed linings give us a bit of subversive humour. All the elements of the design and manufacture are lovingly pulled together even the sewing machine ‘Bertha,’ in Linconshire, is given her spotlight.”
