Favorite Thing: Carga Bags


In a world awash in totes, carryalls, and gadget sleeves, we’ve found a new favorite in Carga. The New York-based company’s rugged bags are produced in a family-run workshop in Buenos Aires, Argentina using a pattern-free “zero-wastage” process: each one is made from single strips of material (felt, leather, industrial-grade canvas) cut from side to side, without any further trimming, and often riveted rather than sewn. Meanwhile, the striking lines of each Carga creation come thanks to founder Mauro Bianucci, who trained as an architect at the University of Buenos Aires before turning his sharp eye to accessories.
