BAGABOO X BLIND CHIC.
As usual, somehow everything goes back to that moment when we started, more precisely on the Cycle Me Home trip.
Bagaboo was actually one of the main sponsors of the trip, offering a messenger bag exclusively made for Levi, who cycled over 3200 kilometers.
At that time Blind Chic., as a brand, was not even born in our head. But after the trip, little by little the brand has been created, and slowly we started to be involved in the Hungarian cycling community.
As far as we remember it was exactly the day of the premiere of the movie – ‘Cycle Me Home’ when we bumped into the creator of Bagaboo.
Since then we got a lot of support from him in managing our brand, and also became really good friends.
The idea of putting our experiences together to create a bag…well, we do not really remember where it came from, but it’s ready, and we love it!
And how destiny or life is, or whatever you believe in:
The first bag was sorted out of all the participants of the 4th Flatland Alleycat in Szeged (15/03/2013)
Guess who won it????
The Bag will be available after the 15th of April. You will be informed about the details of the bag and the availability through our webpages:
Cycle Me Home X Blind Chic.
CMH is a bicycle film project, which had a purpose of making a road movie of a guy, Levi, who spent half year in Madrid as an erasmus film student and decided to cycle back home to Budapest in summer of 2011. If you read the ‘who we are” section then you probably know we joined the trip in Ljubljana, and that is where we met.
With the first CMH trip a whole movement has started.
This year the crew left for their next ride, for the L.E.A.P. tour.
Unfortunately this time we couldn’t join them, but we sent Sherpa to represent us.
Sherpa was created and dedicated to serve Balázs, the photographer of the crew.

LOKÁL SKATESHOP x Blind Chic.
What happens when the cyclists’ and skaters’ needs meet?
First about Lokál! What is special about it??? Well, it is definitely the one, located in the center of Budapest, which is run and ruled by skaters. They are not just our exclusive resellers in the country, but also really good friends.
A few months ago, while drinking some beers, we had this crazy idea of making a roll-top skateboard backpack. We involved the Lokál guys and decided to create something, which has definitely meant the biggest challenge for us so far.
We aimed to make it as functional, as durable as we can, still keeping the original design & esthetics of the brand.
We had been sharing ideas with the guys, so we knew what a skater, or what a cycler-skater would need. Then after testing a few prototypes, Scumbag came to life.
