Initial idea from Ingrid from Berlin:
I'd like a laptop bag in that fits a 15.6 inch laptop (the outer dimensions are about as I've shown in the picture). The material should withstand rain and the bag should be zippable. Inside there should be a separate padded compartment for the notebook, as well as another small zippered inside pocket. Material and pattern as on the right picture.

The story of the project:
Thank you very much, but this price is too high for me.
I said 85 euros max.
Trust this find you well.
My name is Isabel and i wish to make a new offer for this bag. I have attached the three fabrics that i have and i would like you to choose the one that you like. Just to make sure the bag is long lasting i propose to add some leather accent to it especially at the base and sides. Please check the various color of skins i have attached and choose the one that will match well with the fabric.
I am ready and willing to start on your project soonest possible once you clarify the above materials.
Hope to hear from you soon.
I marked the color I chose for fabric and leather in the photos I uploaded today with arrow and circle.
Excellent! i will start on it right away. Please confirm the order..
From my end i am ready.
Thanks for your prompt response!
Trust you have been well. Please find the attached photos for the bag. Showing the different stages and the final bag.
Hope you like it!
Awaiting your feedback.
the format is unfortunately not correct. You made a landscape format (40 x 30 cm), but I wanted a portrait format (30 x 40 cm), like on the sample picture I sent along.
Trust well. The format is portrait I followed your dimensions, but when I download the photos they are taking landscape format. I have tried adding more photos we see.
I am concerned about the fabric. It is not strong enough and I think it will break away faster than the leather. Are you open to substitute it with printed canvas which is stronger and can last long or still prefer this fabric,?.
Let me know most important for me is your give you a quality bag that will last.
Hello isabel, if the bag does not last long it is pointless. How much does it cost with printed canvas?
The material cost will increase by about 10% but then you will get a quality fabric. Also can you allow me to redesign the bag a bit so it may look better. The specified size is making the bag look quite tall and i think we can brainstorm together on how to make it look more beautiful.
Let me know what you think?
I can share the canvas designs available and few design work on the bag but let me have your input please.
Hello, okay with the price. The size has to be like this, the notebook is 39 cm high, and it has to fit in well.
Noted on the size.
Let me rework on the bag we see how it comes out in few days.
I have been looking for a good canvas and I just got a black one. I want to use this as it is very long lasting I will add some of the African print pattern as decoration in the canvas. I also want to change the design just a bit close to the photo I have attached but ofcourse incorporating the size of your laptop as you had mentioned.
Hope this is all good and I can proceed now.
Let me know your thoughts.
ok, do it
Trust you have been fine.
My sincere apologies for I have not updated you in a while. I had a bulk order of the leather and it got delayed from the tannery. I received the leather today and started working on the bag. I have reviewed the pattern as per new design and did the new pattern and made the cuts for the bag. Tomorrow I will start the assembly process!. Kindly have a look at the images sent. Tomorrow I will update you more and the bag should be done I'm the next few days.
Yeah, that looks good! Go on, then.
I have attached some images and video for the production progress. Please have a look. I am excited and I think the bag is getting into a good shape. Note where I have put some African fabric it has a heavy duty canvas to hold it firm and make it durable.
Ja, alles gut.
Please have a look at the photos of the complete bag. Please let me know if I can send it. Personally I like it and I feel it is a better design and a stronger durable bag than the first one.
Please let me know what you think.
