Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger (NATURAL)

In a video last March I talked about a new material that hit the market earlier in the year, a blending of Jute (natural fiber) and Polypropylene (#5 plastic).

The new Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger from Leeds is another example of the adaptation we often see in our industry. Simply, a new material is introduced, it sells, so the industry works to figure out new ideas for the new material. Voilà, the Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger is born.

The Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger is certainly a step up from its simple shopper tote forbears. This is a hip, eco-friendly item aimed directly at the young professional and college markets. Messenger bags have long been very popular as simply book-bags and urban carriers, and with the dawning of the iPad age we are seeing a resurgence of this design as a fun computer carry as well.

With the natural feel of the Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger, I think this unit will complement those canvas, leather, and nylon messenger styles already on the market. To review, Jute is a renewable, natural resource. Non-woven Polypropylene is a number #5 recyclable plastic – where #5 bags are recyclable – and for that reason the new material is currently being marketed as recyclable.

Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger (BLACK)

The Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger measures H 15.5″ x W 3.5″ x L 12.5″, with listed material of  100 gram Non-Woven Jute, which seems to be the name the industry is giving to this new blended material. The imprint area on the Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger is L 6″ x H 6″, and Leeds reports they are designed to hold up to 40 pounds. Add a Velcro closure flap, front pen loop, inside flap storage, and an adjustable shoulder strap, and the Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger is ready to roll.

The Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger is offered in Natural and Black. The imprint for these bags is much closer to the imprint quality of a fabric bag than a non-woven poly, and the fabric itself has a very nice, unfinished texture to it.

I think the Jute Non-Woven Evolution Messenger will be a winner with its target audience and look forward to more ideas from Leeds and others using this new material.
