This is a cute idea to use limited edition upholstery fabrics on messenger bags. Originally built for hard-working messengers, Timbuk 2's Classic Messenger Bag has been in production for 18 years. Known for its long-lasting, rugged durability and distinctive three-panel, multi-color design, the Classic Messenger has been adopted in cities around the world as the everyday, all-purpose carryall. By purchasing one you also support a California run company as Timbuk 2 operates and manufactures their custom bag line in our sister city San Francisco. We gotta say those couches in their ad...not too shabby! if that's what you call a bad couch we'll sign up for that.
