For Johnson, making the perfect bag is like putting together a puzzle—without the picture on the lid for peeking (read: cheating) purposes. First he draws and draws, to get the shapes and proportions out of his head and into a more tangible form. Then he starts thinking about seams and construction—trying to fit everything together in a complicated mosaic. See, while these hefty, durable bags may stand out visually, it’s really what’s on the inside that matters. (Say it with us now: Awww.) There are various binding tapes, reinforced seams and other hardcore details underneath those layers of canvas, working overtime on every bag every day. But, with gorgeous ring and hook closures and sweet design details, we won’t blame you if you judge these bags on their good looks alone.
