Basil’s latest line of bike bags, Katharina Black & Dots, is as indispensible as a little black dress. Pure simplicity made of matt black canvas, but trendy and feminine with curved forms and beautifully finished details. Its cheeky black and white polka-dotted lining and playful bow, give the shoulder bicycle bag a ‘sophisticated look’.
Katharina Black & Dots takes its inspiration from the seductive 1940s and ‘50s fashion of tight waistlines and sexy two-pieces, as well as style icon Audrey Hepburn, who made history with her little black dresses. The Katharina Black & Dots bag line consists of Basil’s by now famous shoulder bicycle bag and a double bike bag for on the rear of the bike.
Shoulder Bag is Bike Bag
The Katharina Black & Dots shoulder bag is fitted with Basil’s inventive mounting system: by storing the hooks in a zipper pocket, the bike bag can be transformed into a ‘normal’ shoulder bag in the blink of an eye. And the hooks allow you to hang the bag effortlessly on both rear and front luggage carriers.
Saddle cover and crate cover
The bike bag line also includes a matching saddle cover and crate cover, sporting black and white dots. Basil has made them of waterproof material.
For Basil, nature and the environment are top priorities, so it uses recycled material for numerous products. The Katharina Black & Dots bags carry the [Re]-cycling logo, which Basil has registered as a brand in order to clearly indicate when a bike accessory has been produced from recycled materials.
