For Local Heroes, Trakke designed a new interpretation of their Banana bumbag in a special Salt & Pepper fabric made using stinging nettles that was first pioneered by the Swiss Army. “It’s a beautiful fabric but it represents something more. It’s iconic; a feat of wartime innovation and a design classic which blends function, style and weather-resistance with sustainability.” The twisted yarn used creates a mottled, almost camouflaged effect perfect for a product that’s smaller than a bag, but bigger than your pockets. The Trakke Banana bumbag sits close to the hip when worn on the waist and safely slung under one arm as a crossbody bag. Stow away your toolkit or hiking rations in the main compartment, and hide away your valuables in the concealed compartment on the back – perfect for a passport when you are on your travels.
Trakke was born from a love affair with Scotland. Inspired by the verdant landscape, the history, the culture and the wildlife. Trakke craft waxed canvas bags that are versatile, durable and timeless, combining utility and style to allow you to transition from workday to weekend with ease. Their products are made in Scotland, using high quality British materials. Each bag is handmade by the team of artisans and built to last a lifetime. So you can focus on what lies ahead; not what's on your back.
