ZBallerini’s Capac, the Messenger
Kind of funny writing this “I’ve Got to Have It,” since I’ve already got it, but you might want one, too. It’s the Z Ballerini line of hand-crafted men’s travel and everyday bags made from the finest natural materials. With an entire collection of goods – all with their own names – my favorite is Capac. Capac is a very slick messenger bag that allows you to stylishly carry your life on your shoulder.
There are no clumsy dividers in the Capac bag, just a lot of room for your laptop, iPad, headphones, cords, cables and just about anything else you can think of. Inside, cream-colored hemp canvas makes everything easy to find, while a rugged black hemp flap fastens over the top to keep your things safe and secure.
“For years, I worked at upscale retail fashion stores,” explains Mike Z. Ballerini, the dashing young man who is the brainchild behind the ZB bags. “Listening to my customers at the stores where I worked gave me two things for which I am ever grateful; the knowledge of what it was they really wanted and the courage to leave my retail life and create it for them. Yes, every ZB bag has my name on it, but a lot of ‘you’ went into it.”
Each ZB bag features fastidious attention to detail, and what’s really cool is that the hand-selected natural materials are designed to age with character and style. I carry some of everything in mine. At any given time, you’ll find my ipad, laptop and cell phone and still room to spare.
Established in 2013 and hand-made in Detroit. But perfectly at home the world over.
