URBANITE CORK BAG

Slim-fit trousers make it tricky to fit a phone, wallet & keys in your pockets. Designed to be worn cross-body, the Urbanite™ bag is made from an innovative, cork-faced textile, which is lightweight, waterproof and sustainable.  An inner pocket permits easy access to a phone or pen, and the outer flap keeps everything secure with a low-profile Velcro closure.  


This bag was brought to market via Kickstarter and manufactured in Chicago.  It is available for purchase on Amazon.com.  


Dimensions are 8.5 x 6 x 1.5 inches, generous enough to fit a sketchbook or iPad mini along with your phone and wallet. 

 

“"The bag size is perfect for running around town. The cork is supple, soft and looks beautiful.”
