For as much as we love our new technology, we tend to either carry them in the cheapest possible option or the most expensive one we can find. There are thousands of plastic and synthetic material items that are available to serve this exact purpose. But more often than not, they have a short life and end up in the trash. What if the focus shifted from the latest accessories to purchasing one item that could protect your tools, digital or not, for your entire life?
Etwas is answering that question while creating on-the-go solutions for your gear.

Utilizing techniques from centuries ago, these bags are made in an electricity-free work environment designed with heirloom quality in mind.
