In line with Number Six tradition, this week we’re welcoming the latest addition to the team in store. Part of the UK exclusives range, Indispensable Bags are making waves across the menswear scene, and we’re proud to be one of only two UK stockists so far. Brand new to the Number Six shelves, we’re introducing East London to Japan’s finest: Indispensable Bags.
Specialising in crafting high quality, beautifully functional goods, the Indispensable Bags team are pioneers of the ‘traditional manufacturing’ movement. This means they’re going back to how things used to be, without the sky-high price point. Like us lot at Number Six, their design team over in Japan really appreciate slow fashion and utilitarian ideals as part of an everyday lifestyle.
“Genuinely intriguing… serious innovation”
Indispensable Bags are built for those of us who can appreciate some proper, decent design. Crafting genuinely intriguing carry goods is the ultimate vision, and thanks to some serious innovation in fabric sourcing, Indispensable Bags make it all look easy. The range sees the use of hardwearing ballistic nylon and PVC-covered outers for increased durability. This kind of industrial process is usually only seen on sailing boats thanks to its reliability and strength, while keeping it lightweight.
“Built to stand the test of time”
Built on the concept of ‘Tradition and Function’, all Indispensable Bags are built to stand the test of time. These guys take a truly utilitarian approach to the everyday, and adapt it for a contemporary lifestyle. We’re happy to have them front and centre here at Number Six HQ in East London.
