The Dark Duo
Meeting Izzy and Molly, the duo behind ProductThief, certainly made us think of Batman and Robin. Why?
Because they’re out to save the world with their monochromatic black leather pouches. Mysterious, simple, stylish and strong with tongue-in-cheek statements and objects embossed on them, ProductThief is out to save the world with their pouches - one boy and girl at a time.
While the concept and aesthetics of the pouches are minimal with as little design as possible, ProductThief insists on sourcing high-quality black zips to match for a cohesive look. Each pouch is lovingly handmade by Izzy and Molly, resulting in a process that potentially brings slight imperfections which they relish in.
Inspired by everything and everyone, ProductThief continues to strive for greater creativity in their work until the world is safe.
“Holy leather bags, Batman!” exclaims Robin.
"Huh?" asks Batman.
"The bags," explains Robin, "it's made out of leather ... and black ... you know."
"Oh," says Batman dryly.
