At our SELA grand opening party last fall, YMFY told me about Timbuk2′s custom bag program, where they manufacture one-off bags at their San Francisco headquarters. He generously offered to make one for me outside of the realm of their usual (but still vast) design constraints. A few months passed and as Logan’s due date approached, I realized that there were no diaper bags on the market that I would use – I found most to be either extremely feminine or “duded out” (see here for prime examples). I asked Bin if he’d be willing to work on a bag for me with a few modifications, and he graciously obliged.
First up was choosing a unique fabric for the body. We went with deadstock Pendleton wool that was provided by my good friend Sam at Tanner Goods, who dug this out of their archives.
Timbuk2 bags are extremely well organized to begin with, but in order for it to function as a diaper bag, I asked Bin to add a few bottle holders to the interior. It turns out that they’re also very useful for storing spare diapers, clothes, etc.
I love these zipper pulls.
This denim changing pad was a gift from Kiya and Demitra. The red tab is still intact on it…
