Giant binder-clip handbag

Peter Bristol created this binder clip bag in 2007 and now he's looking for manufacturing partners: "The binder icon functions so well as a bag you can almost take it seriously. Constructed of wool felt and aluminum tubing."

  1. Okay, I’m kind of liking this thing.  Not quite “shut up and take my money,” but close.

  2. If they made a briefcase model, I’d buy one. Somehow I think it would be the perfect briefcase to go with a bowler and red tie…

  3. Change the dimensions slightly and make them waterproof and you’d have the perfect panniers.

  4. Because being an office drone isn’t demoralizing enough, you need a carryall that reminds you of your daily drudgery each time you lay eyes upon it.   Corporate America approves, but grey is too whimsical a color, it should be flat black.

      1. I take it you’re a fan of the ‘economy model’.  There are purpose-made options available in actual colors, you know.   

      1. It’s not office workers I dislike, it’s office work.  And the oceans of beige that come with offices.  Actually, I don’t dislike beige, I fucking loathe it.

        1. I’m sorry.  Only they whose natural habitat is the great Beige Sea should be stuck there.  May you find your place amid the stark Black-and-White Checkerboard Mountains or Plaid Plains or Trippy Fractal Paisley Forest or wherever it is that you feel at home.

  5. I love that he stayed so faithful to the original, but the handle does seem a bit long and unwieldy. I’m sure this is an issue he wrestled with before saying ‘fuck it, ergonomics be damned it’s got to be just like a giant binder clip.’
