It bags aren't really our thing. UM bags are a different story. Architect turned designer Josh Jakus, the brains behind Cali-based design company Actual, set out to build a bag from nothing more than a piece of industrial felt and a zipper. The result: his UM series, appealingly odd, organically shaped sculptures you can sling over your shoulder. Made in the US, in part from recycled fibers, the quirky carryalls lay totally flat once unzipped for easy storage. JP design destination Room 68 just received several styles, including this UM Pack ($150). Minimalist design that can carry all your crap? Um, yeah.
