Designer Locale - based in Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Pack! is a modular bag system encompassing backpacks, tote bags, and laptop cases, created by Alei Verspoor.
Pack! is based on the idea of Design for Disassembly. Every item is an combination of loose detachable parts. You can buy a pre-assembled piece, but also extra components – straps, sleeves, and clips- to adjust and evolve your bag over time. This modular system emphasises individuality, longevity, and renewal.
Pack! designs are highly aesthetic, and at the same time functional. The quality materials used -heavy polyester webbing, waterproof cloth, and aluminum clips- are selected for their durability.
All Pack! products are currently handmade in Amsterdam on a made-to-order basis.
