Founded in 1902, Maharam offers a comprehensive collection of textiles for commercial and residential interiors. Recognized for its rigorous and holistic commitment to design, Maharam embraces a range of disciplines from product, graphic, and digital design to art and architecture. Maharam textiles are included in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Stedelijk Museum, among others.
Maharam issued a brief to designers Konstantin Grcic, Klaartje Martens and Jasper Morrison to create bags they might use themselves. Reflecting three distinct approaches, the bags are united by a focus on utility, simple geometric form and inventive construction. Textiles have been chosen for physical properties that complement each bag’s character: rigid and hardwearing cotton canvas, lightweight nylon parachute cloth, papery matte polyurethane. Marked by thoughtful functionality and refined details, the bags are made by a small-scale, high-quality US producer.
Care: clean with damp cloth.
Konstantin Grcic (b. 1965, Germany) is an industrial designer whose Munich-based studio combines deep research with emerging technologies to create furniture, lighting and other products.

Klaartje Martens (b. 1965, the Netherlands) is a textile and accessories designer based in Arnhem, the Netherlands.
