If a rolling duffel is just not hipster enough for you, it's time to go full hobo and get yourself an bindle. But don't just grab any old stick and rag, get yourself a "locally-grown, naturally-fallen artisanal bindle bags" from Josiah and Dusty, the Bindle Bros of (you guessed it) Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
"We're trying to build adventures, one stick, one bindle at a time," Dusty said to the New York Times. "You can fit any physical objects in a bindle," added Josiah,"but bindles are really meant for your hopes and your dreams."
These bindles ain't cheap: a basic one goes for $99, and fancy ones can cost up to $350. "There's a lot of R and D that goes into constructing one of these gems," Josiah defended his handmade creation, "You can't just tie a bandanna to the end of a stick." And business is booming:
But before you rage against the inanity of the idea of an artisanal bindle (come on, you're kicking yourself because you didn't think of it first), read the full story behind the Bindle Bros over at the New York Times.
I wonder if you can carry artisanal firewood in one of those bindles.
