Ethnotek's new Cyclo Travel Sling design is an innovative new take on the classic waist bag and is ideal for the jet-setter or urban commuter that’s looking for a minimalist carrying solution where everything can be accessed quickly and secured tightly. Cyclo is the English spelling of Xich Lo, which is a Vietnamese bicycle with a basket on front for carrying people or goods, similar to a rickshaw. One aspect of the Cyclo Travel Sling that makes it so unique, is its size. The Sling is scaled to fit passports, plane tickets and travel itineraries in the back zipper compartment and a sweatshirt or light jacket, books and headphones in the roll-top main compartment. The Cyclo Travel Sling can be worn on the back like a traditional messenger bag or on the waist.
Ethnotek THREADs are sourced directly from local artisans around the globe including India, Africa, Guatemala, Indonesia and Asia. These fabrics not only give life to the bag but also support communities and help keep traditional craft forms alive.
PLEASE NOTE: As THREADs are made by hand by local artisans, the pattern and colour order may vary slightly from piece to piece, but will be representative of the bag you have purchased.
