Gabs - Convertible flat shopping bag - Claude Monet, Still Life with Flowers and Fruit, 1869
This bag can be transformed into 3 models:
- a flat shopper (with handles and/or shoulder strap)
- a handbag with a broader bottom (Pin the 2 lowest buttons to the bottom and insert the bottom plate, to obtain a supportive, even base)
- a smaller bowling bag (In addition to the previous step, pin the 2 top buttons to the side of the bag)
Gabs represents the creativity, innovation and high quality of ‘Made in Italy’. They revolutionize the world of leather goods with the first bag able to live in more shapes, sizes and uses then ever seen before. This, thanks to a mechanism as simple as ingenious: a turquoise button. Gab’s whole world revolves around this concept: the turquoise buttons are the key to reinvent each model with a few simple gestures, creating new shapes and new volumes. Each Gabs transformation is patented and carefully studied by an internal team of designers, who analyse and design the product with the utmost attention and great attention to detail.
Gabs was born in Florence in 2000 from an idea of Franco Gabbrielli.
His father, Vittorio Gabbrielli, had founded a leather goods company with the brand "Beghé", during the seventies. After having breathed the scent of leather in his family for many years and having acquired the technical knowledge of the old tradition, Franco decided to bet on a new great project: selling an idea dressed as a bag, where the container can easily be transformed according to the needs of the consumer.
Today Gabs is a reference brand in Italian leather goods, which goes beyond all conventional schemes and has always been synonymous with colour, versatility and innovation.
