The Carry Awards – Best Work Messenger
Best Work Messenger – Bedouin Barbary
“Luxe yet hardcore. Trad yet innovative. The Barbary somehow has it all”
Bedouin somehow manage both a luxury feel and a hardcore vibe. They get traditional fabrics to feel fresh and innovative. They get that whole British thing of looking interesting and quirky in a way that you really want to get to know. And the Barbary is a prime example of this Bedouin charisma.
A classic messenger format is created with traditional waxed canvases and top grain leathers. The Barbary then seals it all in with two bombproof Cobra buckles that hint at its industrial strength.
A soft frame wraps to your body, while a spread shoulder strap nurses the load across your shoulder. The opening is tubed enough to avoid Gorby Gap, and the linings are a highlight within themselves.
This is a bag that starts amazing, and then gets better with age, and is a deserving Work Messenger winner for 2012.
Oh, and yes, it’s available in black for the conservative workplace.
