TAIKAN Everything is the newly-launched unisex bag line that you need to know about, especially if you’re in the market for a simple, functional bag that can see you through your busy day. The line was developed by a group of creatives from Vancouver who wanted to create quality bags that were accessible for everyone, that combine the clean design found in higher-end fashion brands but without the high-end price tag.
You’ll surely be able to find a silhouette that you like from TAIKAN’s diverse lineup that includes two backpacks, a tote and a duffel. Each are crafted from ballistic nylon, which was originally developed as a material for jackets worn by WWII airmen, and intended to protect its wearer from flying debris and shrapnel (hence the name). As you can probably guess, this is a super strong and yet extremely light fabric, making it perfect for a bag that isn’t bulky or heavy, yet is still durable — the perfect marriage of style and substance. In addition to the nylon construction, the bags also boast finer details including leather detailing, nickel finish hardware and removable straps.
Check out some images of the bags here and shop them online at www.taikaneverything.com, or through such retail boutiques as Roden Gray, NRML, Still Life and Boys Co.
