Frame Bag by Konstantin Grcic
Maharam put forth a brief asking the designers to create bags suited to their personal needs, an exercise intended to permit unhindered expression using highly skilled small-scale US-based production.
Karel Bag by Klaartje Martens
The straightforward shapes of Dutch designer Klaartje Martens' bags are the result of complex patternmaking. The Karel - named for her father, graphic designer Karel Martens - is an austere over-the-shoulder duffel.

Scamp Bag by Jasper Morrison
Jasper Morrison reimagined a rigid canvas box tote, adding thoughtfully scaled and positioned pockets and a flap top, all secured by stout zippers. "High functionality makes the understated Scamp Bag an ideal travel companion." says Maharam.
