As a part of Girls Inc.'s annual Power of the Purse event, Looptworks joined forces to create this year's traveling purse, a bag that travels with a few local celebrities. At the end of its journey, the bag will return to the annual Power of the Purse Gala, with all proceeds going directly to Girls Inc.

Our interpretation of the traveling purse ended up taking the form of a backpack that could be utilized by a professional woman. (or man) Using durable, upcycled leather from Langlitz Leathers, the design gives a slight nod to female strength. Read more about Langlitz Leathers and how our bag was created below.

The Process

The inspiration behind our traveling bag is unity. When traveling, one takes their original self and joins it with a new foreign force, thus integrating each side. And in the end, through complexion, they create harmony.

However, during development, we furthered our efforts in harmony. Through compromise and change between our in-house designers, we created a unity of ideas. From design alterations to material selection, our team wanted to create a backpack that demonstrated strength and empowerment all with a classic look (thanks to the use of Langlitz Leather).
