Materials & Fabrication

Fabrics that perform

Our fabrics are sourced from all over the world and rigorously tested for feel, form, durability and finish.

We understand the importance of designs that withstand the elements. All of our carry-wear features water-repellent casing, colour-fade protection and anti-stretch technology which keeps your bag in top condition through all the seasons.

Our zips undergo testing in our quality and control labs simulating hundreds of pulls and tugs a minute.

We select materials for their functionality, environmental sustainability and urban sensibility.

Recycled leathers, water-repellent polyesters and soft cottons are seamlessly woven together to create bags, backpacks and sleeves that look good, feel good and provide the ultimate protection for your valuables.

The EVOL Vision

The EVOL Story…starts with you

You bike, you train, you run for the bus, you go to meetings, you go for drinks.

You film, you edit, you consult clients over coffee, you operate on a wifi connection and a phone.

You value practicality, you match mood with the seasons and you need carry-wear that fits seamlessly into every day.

This is where we come in.

At EVOL our aim is to bring simplicity to busy lives through intelligent design.

We noticed a big gap in the market for smart-casual carry-wear that’s as practical as it is beautiful, so naturally we asked – how can we do it better?

Looking to the world of high performance fashion, we sourced and tested fabrics for durability and form, we experimented with shape, weight and size.

We drew inspiration from all around us – the streets of Melbourne to the beaches of Byron.

What we developed was weather-proof, shock-proof, light-weight, extra-strength base construction cases and carriers all within a minimalist aesthetic.

Or in other words, carry-wear that offers you the ultimate in security and style.

Our Inspirations

Spotlight on Byron: next-generation carry-wear

Mark Zuckerberg and Steve Jobs did this one simple thing every morning to declutter their daily routines. They chose to wear the same outfit every day. Why? Because when you have hundreds of important decisions to make, systemising daily tasks makes sense.

While you may not be ready to switch out your entire wardrobe, there is one item that needn’t change. Your work bag.

Let’s face it, you lead a busy life. You have clients to close, projects to submit, gallery openings to attend. You’re making decisions every minute.

When you’re juggling this much life, wouldn’t it be a relief to not have to juggle multiple bags on top of it all?

That was the question we asked ourselves.

How do we create a bag that will see you through all of your daily movements? A design that you trust for its durability, appreciate for its comfort and proudly wear for its urban luxury.

In an industry where function is too often sacrificed for style, we had to cast our net wider. So we looked to high-performance fashion and found inspiration in an unlikely source.

A bag built like a shoe

We love high performance fashion. It is grounded in functionality, but it inspires through its style and expression. It blends high-tech materials with high-end design and produces products that are not only adored, but also depended on daily.

At the epicentre of this innovation lives the humble sneaker – and the inspiration behind our Byron range.

Designed with the same precision, style and attention to detail of a performance shoe, Byron offers you unparalleled quality.

Encased in a highly water-resistant gel polyester, the Byron backpack features compartments for all your essentials including 15” laptop, adjustable straps for comfort, a trolley-loop which can be converted to a zipper pocket and a reinforced shock-proof base.

The sleek and compact silhouette is versatile enough to move from formal work environments to after-work drinks and through the weekend.

With space for everything that you need when you’re on the move, this is your answer to the mobile lifestyle.
