PRODUCT DESIGN

messenger bag

The design of this standard-sized messenger bag provides a viable and previously nonexistent way to repurpose car airbags, seat belts, and seat foam into a desirable product. It is designed with sustainability in mind. The body is manufactured from old car airbags that were never deployed. The buckles and strap are constructed from car seat belts, and finally, the shoulder strap is cushioned with car seat foam. All of these materials are not reusable for their intended purpose due to safety and health restrictions. The features of this bag include a large main compartment, large enough for a 17" laptop, a side pocket on each side, adjustable shoulder strap, and snap enclosure.
