The Logia Pocket Bag
What is it?
The Mála Logia Pocket Bag, as the name suggests, is both a bag and a pocket. Designed by our team of designers and creatives, it is made to be a multi-functional, multi-purpose, everyday accessory. For when you need something that's not as small as a pocket or as inconvenient as carrying a bag.
Designed to fit the wearer's needs, it can be worn on its own strap crossbody or round the waist and can be attached to any bag or handle. The pleated design expands to increase storage - fitting everything from wallets and phones to camera lenses, e-readers, tools and much more.
The compact design makes for ease of wearing and allows it to be easily concealed under outer garments for added security if required.
Why did we design it?
As a team of creatives always struggling to find a bag or pocket that fits all our needs. We wanted to solve the eternal problem of a lack of pockets (or at least useable pockets in womenswear and also to create a simple alternative to carrying a crossbody or small bag.
Particularly as creatives, makers and designers we needed something that could be easily worn, that isn't inconvenient and can be adapted easily to different tasks. Of course this isn't just a desire of makers and creatives - almost everyone we spoke to could think of a use that was unique to them!
Sustainability was also hugely important to us in the making of the bag. If we were going to create anything, it had to have as close to zero negative impact on the environment as possible. We needed to create something zero-waste, that was sourced ethically, sustainably and as locally as possible. That is completely traceable with full transparency in our supply chain.
The Logia is named for its place of origin. The Logia is a former name of the River Lagan in Belfast, Northern Ireland. The Mála team met whilst studying at Ulster University Belfast, where they came together to form Mála Belfast and design this, our first product.
Our colour ways are inspired by the locations in our founders' lives. This collection - the Heath collection - comes from walks on the North Down coastal paths and the colours and plant life found there.
