LA-based label, Mad Rabbit Kicking Tiger (or M.R.K.T), brings a methodical approach to accessory design.

Created by Harvard-trained architect, Tom Pen, the brand delivers pieces with an architectural aesthetic and clean form. Pen brings his eye for design to a range spans backpacks, briefcases, totes, shoulder, messenger and weekender bags, with a focus on functionality.

Materials are selected based on properties of texture, rigidity and colour-fastness. The label largely works with an engineered industrial felt in two finishes, designed to be durable and unlike anything on the market today. M.R.K.T goes even further with its Tarpaulin collection of backpacks, made from waterproof, coated canvas. 

This is design at its peak. View the full range online here
