Maharam invited designers Konstantin Grcic, Hella Jongerius, and Jasper Morrison, among others, to imagine a bag they’d like to use themselves. While reflecting several distinct approaches, the bags are united by a focus on utility, simple geometric form, and inventive construction. Material choices complement each bag’s character: rigid and hard wearing cotton canvas, supple leather, lightweight nylon parachute cloth, or papery matte polyurethane. Marked by thoughtful functionality and refined details, the bags are made by high-quality US producers.

Maharam was founded in 1902 by Louis Maharam, a Russian immigrant. Through the generations, Maharam evolved from a source of theatrical textiles for costume and set design in the 1940s to a pioneer of performance-driven textiles for commercial interiors in the '60s.
