Postalco's Flat Pack Lamp Black is a lightweight and minimal bag with a clean, smooth shape and easy access to all your belongings. Its main cushioned compartment fits a 14-inch laptop, notebooks or other papers. Opening the bag is effortlessly smooth with a handle that connects to the zipper. An 'attic' pocket hidden under the flap means your glasses, charger and other essentials don't get squished. Additionally, a small zipper pocket featured on the backside gives quick access to your wallet, phone or keys.
This Flat Pack feels good even when it's full. Its tall shape centers nicely on your back, with the help of unique crossed straps to anchor it for a perfect fit. The backside features a fabric panel for improved breathability and comfort.
Inspired by flat bread, it is a result of accumulated wisdom, containing a nutritional punch that is absolutely delicious — all within a deceptively simple-looking, flat shape. There's something sophisticated and even futuristic about flat bread. Technology is always working to be thinner and flatter. Flat means easy, effortless and also essential.
Light hammer nylon
Made to be light and strong, this fabric is named for its almost hammered looking surface, which feels natural but has the strength of nylon. It has been treated to be water repellent while keeping the fabric thin and flexible, for a light and effortless everyday bag that can be used even on rainy days.
To increase strength, the leather was shrunken. This shrinking process makes the leather fibers more dense and imparts a soft flexibility. The signature of shrunken leather is the irregular ‘pebbly’ textured grain that varies from skin to skin.
Postalco leather is colored using aniline dyes. Aniline dyes soak into the leather, preserving the natural variation in grain and texture. The more aniline dyed leather is used, the better the surface patina gets over time. Making vegetable-tanned and aniline dyed leather is more expensive and time consuming, but produces beautiful leathers.
Measures 26 x 43 x 13,5 cm

Made from Postalco's light hammer nylon and vegetable-tanned cowhide

Care for your Postalco bag
* Clean by spot dry clean or wipe with a damp soft cloth
* Do not machine wash or place in the dryer
* Leather and fabric webbing may fade with use and colors may bleed when wet
* If your bag gets wet gently blot it with a soft dry cloth
* Only use water repellent spray made to be used with both leather and fabric
* If the leather feels dry, use a mild creme to replenish moisture (be sure to use only clear cream as any color will rub off)
Misc-store Amsterdam x Postalco
At Misc-store, we absolutely adore the Postalco products for their incredible quality and and their general approach to product design. We as humans are restricted to what we can do on our own, and have developed a great variety of tools to help us through life. If the objects we use in our everyday life are well made, we will use them longer and with greater pleasure. This idea - the well-aging tool - is at the centre of Postalco's design approach.
Misc-store has carried the Postalco line for 7 years now. During this period, we have seen many versions and items come and go, and have grown to love the brand and its products more and more with each improvement.
We are not the only fans: our customers share this growing appreciation, and we have had the pleasure of seeing tons of different uses for Postalco's items. Especially their Snap Pad has been sold as a wedding guest book, a portfolio, a lamp color filter holder for a film director - its purpose is as varied as our customer base.
Misc-store Amsterdam x Postalco will be a collaboration to continue into the future: we are excited to see what more innovation they will bring, and what other ways people will come up with to use their products.

You detect something of a quest for perfection in Postalco’s work. A sliver of imagination that sticks itself into something not quite good enough and prises it open, revealing new territories within.
Postalco’s very first project began in just such an inquisitive way. Bag designer Mike Abelson found the bag of his partner, graphic designer Yuri Abelson, stuffed with awkwardly bent papers from her work. He set about making a better carry case for her papers, which resulted in the Postalco legal envelope. Soon enough, they packed their bags and swapped New York for Tokyo, in order to be closer to the artisans responsible for crafting their distinctive products.
Postalco products are often materially dependant, reflecting a precise history of the leather, brass, cotton and fabric with which they were made. We were drawn to these objects from the moment we saw them. From the moment we began stocking Postalco in 2010, we found the Ableson’s work special – touching in its desire for longevity and engaging in its aesthetic sensibility.
We’re a proud stockist of Postalco, and we have been carrying their products since we first opened Misc Store in Amsterdam. If you’re in the Netherlands, come and visit our store in to get a feel for these supremely tactile objects.
