The dream of the perfect everyday bag and the story behind it I Bukvy Bag
In 2014 I was living in Stockholm and was pregnant with my first child. I was working in IT creating solutions for the banking industry. I have always loved bags but they just didn't seem to work with me. I carried my dad's old Fjällräven backpack on my bike to work, had a nice leather laptop case in the backpack which I stuffed down when walking into my meetings and I had a third handbag for the after-work- activities. This often ended up in a mess and I was always searching the bags for my essentials, and I had a close relationship with my locksmith. My friend Joanna is an architect, she mostly carried a canvas tote but she had the same problem. We decided that bags must be able to do better. 
We started drawing, sewing, testing and after about 12 months, we had created the Bo Bardi 5-in-1 bag
Why we ended up creating the Bo Bardi, the bag that treansforms with you during your day
