So how do we make them? An unused Pretoria Portland Cement paper bag is the beginning of each piece. (Have a look at www.ppc.co.za to see the original packaging.) Production takes a while, but it’s worth it. We separate the layers, remove the top and third layer of the bag and fuse them together. Bonding them with black cotton means that durability is never compromised. From there, you can treat it like any other fabric. We draw the pattern, cut it and stitch the bag together. And we’re quite pleased with the result.
The PPC Cement Laptop Bag is as practical as you can get, too. There are two sections and two pockets: carry your laptop cables in one pocket and an iPhone or mouse in the other. A padded divider separates your laptop from any other papers or notes, and the entire inside of the bag is also padded to protect everything that you carry inside it.
After stitching we coat the bag to make it water resistant – so yes, you can use this bag even when it is raining!
