DESIGN / MATERIAL GUIDE & CARE

DESIGN

M.R.K.T. bags are structured; designed as modern interpretations of classic styles. The distinctive characteristics of our collections consist of a three dimensional body design with clean lines and geometric pure forms. Using innovative technology like precision laser cutting, M.R.K.T. bags achieve the structural and modern aesthetic that conventional bags may lack.

Colour story and collection themes are influenced and inspired by cityscapes, architectural structures and coexisting natural elements.

Functionality is incorporated with features such as removable media sleeves, dedicated compartments and comfortable shoulder straps.

Our materials are socially conscious and vegan friendly. 

MATERIAL GUIDE & CARE

Materials are selected based on unconventionality as well as various properties of texture, rigidity and colour-fastness. Our primary material is an engineered industrial felt which we label "SMRT FELT" and "SUPR FELT", depending on the finish. Both are highly durable and unlike anything on the market today.

To prevent stains and water marks, treat your bag with an all season repellent prior to the first wear.  

If you have questions about proper care, please write us at questions@mrktstore.com. 

 

VEGN LEATHER

Simple, clean and resilient high quality polyurethane. High level of colour saturation and resistant to most stains and dirt.

Care: Our vegan friendly polyurethane is maintenance free, lightweight, and animal friendly. It is crafted from polyurethane, is water resistant, and can be cleaned simply by using a damp cloth to wipe away any dirt or stains. It is generally safe to use in rainy conditions, but is not meant to withstand your intrepid scuba diving adventures.

 

SMRT FELT

Hyper-dense synthetic industrial felt. Provides rigidity and structure. Durable, water resistant, mildew free and colourfast.

Care: 100% recyclable and made by a leading German manufacturer, our felt is composed of very tightly woven synthetic fibres that give your bag rigidity and structure, and makes it remarkably water and stain resistant. We have made sure to cover high friction areas with protective panels, though felt may have a tendency to pill if it is subjected to excessive friction. Some people like this fuzzy look. But if you don’t, you can take a common disposable razor and shave off the pills. This may sound MAD at first, but after years of shave tests (yes, we perform shave tests), we have found that the integrity of the bag does not noticeably diminish over time, and you’re off looking good as new in a matter of minutes.

 

SUPR FELT

Hyper-dense synthetic industrial felt that has undergone a surface searing process to create a natural textured pattern. Has a subtle modern sheen and is highly durable, water resistant, mildew free and colourfast.

Care: Coming from the same core material as SMRT FELT, our innovative SUPR FELT has an added process during which we melt the fibers on the surface of the material. This creates a non-porous and solid finish that is both highly durable and water resistant. Unlike it's SMRT FELT predecessor, SUPR FELT does not pill and requires very little maintenance. If your bag does get dirty, we suggest you clean it with a damp cloth. 

 

MCRO SUEDE

Premium suede microfiber. With threads 20 times finer than silk, has a premium feel that provides an alternative to traditional animal suede.

Care: With threads 20x finer than silk, our microfiber range represents the premium end of our designs. Although a synthetic alternative to animal leather, microfiber should be treated with care and should not be subjected to rain or snow. It is moderately water resistant in small amounts. However if you should get a stain on your microfiber bag, we have found that a damp cloth and some hand soap will usually do the trick.

 

MCRO LEATHER

Leather-like microfiber that is supple in texture. Clean minimalist aesthetic. Resistant to foul weather.

Care: Our smooth microfiber is vegan friendly and has a buttery texture. Similar to it's MCRO SUEDE cousin, the microfiber material should be treated with care. A damp cloth and hand soap will remove most stains. For hard to clean stains, use a typical water based cleaner.

DO NOT under any circumstances attempt to wash your bag in a washing machine, use detergents or bleach, or dry clean your bag. If you have questions about proper care, please write us at questions@mrktstore.com.
