Designer's note

Introduced in Spring 2011 the M/S Backpack has grown to become one of the most iconic and admired styles in our collection. A man of the world, it has graced the floor of some of the most prestigious addresses in fashion retail over the last 10 years, from our very own Storm in Copenhagen to Colette in Paris, Dover Street Market in London, Barneys New York over United Arrows in Tokyo, Lane Crawford in Hong Kong and 10 Corso Como in Seoul & Shanghai…A true cosmopolitan.

A versatile tote bag that size wise takes its place between the M/S Shopper and the M/S Verve. It’s that well-proportioned everyday tote bag that you can use for pretty much anything from work & training to travel & leisure. The paired down design and all around prime materials ensure longevity and versatility. But keep it guarded at home or risk that it falls into the hands of another family member. It’s a bag for everyone!

The M/S Unite features an interior zip pocket and opposite two durable slide-down pockets for the small essentials. A dividable zip at the top ensures secure closure of the bag while a sailor hook and D-ring attached to the zip border ensures a second closing option should you not wish to zip it all up! An adjustable belt strap running from gusset to gusset serves as a shoulder strap.

Ballistic Nylon

Ever since we introduced this sultry combination, it has become a true Mismo classic. Drawing inspiration from the black beaches at the South Coast of Iceland, this nylon is designed for heavy-duty wear and will stand up to nearly any test. Constructed from ballistic nylon – so-called for its tight basket weave and high tenacity – it is slightly thicker and heavier than our other fabrics and is characterized by extreme durability. Waterproof by nature.

Composition: PA 64% - PL 19% - PU 17% 

Martindale: 50.000 // Weight: 862 gr. per running meter

Solid brass with gunmetal coating

Our hardware is chosen for its durability and therefore made from a base of solid brass material. For our series of ballistic nylons we've given the hardware a sleek gunmetal coating for a clean and modern look. We source all of our hardware from Italy, working with specific articles that we’ve been using and testing for more than 15 years. We only use classic hardware pieces that we know will stand the test of heavy daily wear, like the sailor hooks that appear in many of our designs.

Grey colored

The lining used for our fabric bags is woven from a combination of polyester and viscose. We use this combination as it offers the best durability while still providing a soft and tactile handfeel.

Black, vegetable tanned full-grain bridle leather

Full grain is the best quality leather available, maintaining the top layer of the original cowhide intact and unaltered. This ensures that the leather is resistant and ages well, while also highlighting some of the natural characteristics of the grain, such as wrinkles, veins and pores. Bridle leather refers to the way that a piece of leather (cowhide) is treated with wax both on the flesh and grain sides of the leather. With a thickness of approx. 3mm, only the best grades of leather from older cattle can be used, as a certain age is required for the hide to attain the thickness and sturdiness necessary to become bridle leather.

Hand polished YKK Excella zippers

Renowned Japanese company YKK has been producing zippers since 1934. We exclusively use their best zipper available, the Excella zippers. The YKK Excella is the Rolls Royce of zippers, with every element, down to the teeth, perfected and hand-polished. A smooth zipper is indispensable to a well-made bag, after all it should add utility, beauty and longevity to the bag rather than taking away from it.

I bought Mismo backpack for my husband as Christmas-present some years ago. It turned out to be my favorite bag, and now a few years after, we both have our own ones and we have bought some other bags and accessories too. Mismo bags are top quality, long lasting and never goes out of fashion

I just wanted to tell you my daughter has used your backpack every day for 7 years. It still looks as good as the day we bought it and even with her heavy books and workload, and her tendency to drop the bag anywhere, the straps/ leather and fabric show no signs of wear. It was an expensive purchase for a school bag but I can’t tell you how impressed I am with the value for money. It has also survived all teenage fashion fads as the styling is timeless and she will now be taking it to University. I’m so happy we made the investment! Bravo, in times of disposable fashion you have really provided a quality purchase

Dear Mismo team, Thanks for giving the opportunity to share my opinion. I now own a couple Mismo bags, and honestly there is no other brand that combines such levels of aesthetics and durability. These bags age very well thanks to high quality materials and simple but clever design. I always look forward to new designs and colors. I realized that a weekend getaway without a Mismo bag doesn't have the same flavor. Congrats to the Mismo team for your amazing work!

I discovered the Mismo brand and products at Bon Marché in Paris. Since then, I have already ordered a bag on the Mismo site and another in Paris. The quality of service, the products, the philosophy of the brand, everything is there. The communication is also very well done, even if for me who am not bilingual, a site in French would be welcome. Well done for your products and your communication!!!!

I have got several Mismo bags in different materials, shapes and for different purposes. They all fit wonderfully to different types of activities whether leisure/travelling or business. Great durability, good comfort and nice to look at. Keep growing your assortment!
