The Um Tote

Amanda has the most amazing bag. It’s one piece of felt with 2 zippers that run alongside the entire edge. When zipped, it makes this offkilter yet lithesomely symmetrical purse. When unzipped, it’s totally flat.

It’s called the Um Tote, and you can get it at Branch. There is a sibling bag called the Um Carry that uses the same design.

The designer is Josh Jakus, and his explorations of flat into form are inspiring.

You can get the Um Tote and the Um Carry at a lot of online shopping sites. I just wish I could afford one. Oh, and I also wish that I didn’t have a really annoying allergy to wool.
