The Ibora beach bag was created because of a recurring problem while living in Barcelona. We often had spontaneous picnics in the park, or headed down to the beach enjoying the beautiful weather the city has to offer. Many times however no one had a blanket or towel to sit down on. We always ended up having to sit on the grass, our clothes or in the sand or purchase our 10th beach blankets from the street sellers. I knew that there must be a way to make sure it wont happen again. I went home bought a sewing machine and some fabrics and went to work. I created a simple dragsting backpack and thought of ways to include a blanket in a way to have full uninterrupted access to the main compartment. I made a list of essential items I always bring to the beach to estimate the size i need for the beach bag. The list was short but clearly pointed me to the right direction. With the essentials in mind i created my first bag and all my friends loved it. They wanted one for themselves so i knew i was on a right path.
These are the first times i have had a real life test of the bag on my travels.
I didn't want to compromise on the carrying capacity and didn't want to have to get my things out to get to the blanket. After a many failed attempts and testing different prototypes i came up with the solution that allowed me to have the same packing space as an empty drawstring bag, while still having my blanket with me all the time. This is how the Ibora Beach Bag was born. It became the best solution to an annoying problem most of us have for the time we should be the most relaxed.
After designing, testing, redesigning and adding many useful features to the bag, we launched the idea on Kickstarter, and successfully raised over €70,000 in just a month.
Thanks to our amazing Kickstarter backers this idea became a reality.
We like to think of design as something that should always be around us, so we create products that are inspired by our surroundings. We believe that buying our products should give value to someone's life, and using it should be fun and exciting. Our goal is to create products that solve a real problems, not just invent them.
We like to design products that are designed for a specific purpose but still multi functional, and most importantly makes life easier. With the ibora beach bag you can travel more spontaneously by using it as your daypack on your holiday.
