I spotted these unique, ecofriendly bags from Mad Rabbit Kicking Tiger (M.R.K.T. for short) wandering around the mega-malls of Makati in greater Manila the other day.
LA-based architect Tom Pen founded the menswear startup in 2010, which focuses on minimalist, design-conscious bags and accessories for men.
The company has hooked into distribution in the Philippines via retailers Bratpack, where i saw their bags, and The Travel Club stores across the country.
And why not? As the Manila Standard observes, “the influx of Filipinos traveling across cities and countries has further increased the demand for handbags to carry all their essentials.”
