  • Olympic Bee Bag

    I am quite excited about the start of the Olympics. I have to admit I am completely enthralled by everything from opening ceremonies to the athletics to the basketball games. At Urbanknit HQ we thought we’d do a little something to show our support and love of the games, especially as it holding in our beloved London this time around.

    The most prominent symbol of the games are the 5 interlocking rings in blue, yellow, black, green, and red and usually against a white background. It was designed in 1912 by Baron Pierre de Coubertin, the founder of the modern Olympic Games.  The rings represent the five continents of the world and it is suggested that at least one of the colours appears on all the national flags of the world. Let us know if you have spotted an exception!

    We have a made a special Olympic Bee Bag (our bestselling pleated tote bag) which incorporates each of these colours in strips of Aso-Òkè. The Olympic colours with an African twist!

    Check out the full schedule of the games to make sure you don’t miss something exciting. So what particular event are you looking forward to seeing? Please leave a comment and let us know!

    Its a brand new month, here’s to a great start.

    Our item of the week is this cool little gadget sleeve which gives you a funky way to store and transport you Netbook, iPad or any other gadget  of a similar size. The Pink Zebra laptop sleeve has several layers of padding so your gadget is protected from bumps and scratches. It also closes with a funky chunky zipper keeping everything in place.

    This Africa-inspired piece is made in a fabric from Nigeria known as ‘Aso-oke’ which is a a fabric that is handwoven on a loom and is usually worn during special occasions and festivals. The sleeve is also lined internally with bright pink African print fabric, with a blue butterfly motif.

     

  • The Zipper Pouch

     

     

    Reintroducing the humble zipper pouch. Make it do whatever you want it to. Some reasons why you need one (or more!):

    1. Keep those wayward receipts together in one place.
    2. A cosy place for your ipod.
    3. A mini make-up bag for the essentials. Fits nicely into a bigger bag.
    4. Keys coins and a few cards all in one place, works well as a little clutch
    5. They come in bright prints and batiks making them easy to spot in your bag

    You can get individual zippers but even better is the 3 zipper set which allows you to save if you would like to buy more than one. Makes a great gift for one or more people.
