The lovely Deborah Jacobs emailed me to see if I could create a sophisticated laptop travel bag for her new job, because  “it is your work I admire and makes me feel great”.  How could I say no to that?  I invited her to come visit my studio, to hammer out the details of a professional bag for her world travels, but still help her express her funky style on the inside.  Features to include:

  • Appearance: sensuous like the Metier tote
  • Hold a laptop, plus room for folders and paperwork
  • a padded, removable laptop sleeve in a funky pattern, with zipper closure
  • Sturdy, but flexible enough to completely flatten and pack inside a suitcase
  • 2 large pockets on the outside, and pockets galore on the inside
  • Straps: two short padded handles to carry the laptop bag by hand, and one long, removable shoulder strap that can attach with clips

Although Deborah travels for work about 40% of the time, I still managed to complete her bag in record time, communicating via email and photos over a few weeks. And I am so pleased with how it turned out! It was immensely satisfying to create a bag that met the very specific needs of a very busy woman.

p.s. You don’t have to be a Seattle VIP to have me create a custom laptop bag for you! Please feel free to drop me a line at ck (at) crystalynkae.com. I would love to hear your ideas!
