About The City Messenger:
We wanted to create a bag inspired by the city, with the versatility of a tote, the functionality of a messenger and we thought there's no better place to debut it then at the 99% design conference in New York. A sophisticated bag with a long slim aesthetic that perfectly fits a 13" macBook Air, iPad or Moleskine, the new Rickshaw "City Collection" is simple, stylish, versatile, and customizable. We designed our new three-style tote series to be the perfect companion bag for your on-the-go essentials. 

A Functional Approach:
We've designed an innovative accessory system designed to work seamlessly with our City Collection family. Continuing our philosophy of minimal, sustainable design, each bag has a strip of velcro designed to hold accessories that can add function to your bag. We believe your bag should adapt, and our accessory system allows you to easily change your bag's configuration. Here's our full line of interchangeable velcro accessories, and we're steadily working on more.

About Design:
We pride ourselves on following our three F's of design, Form Function and Footprint, to craft a quality product with urban communing in mind. Next time you're in town, we invite you to come take a tour of our San Francisco factory to see where each and every Zero is made.
