Rickshaw Zero Messenger

Rickshaw is a recently launched SF-based bag company supporting high-quality, human-powered design. I checked out some of the videos behind the bags and found the video explaining the Zero Messenger really interesting. The bag is cut and sewn from only four rectangles of fabric with nothing going out to the landfill. All the pieces make it into the bag (including a few scraps), resulting in no manufacturing material waste. Plus the bags look great: clean, simple and functional. Check out the video below for the info.
