Fede Surfbags by Fede Ubertone are handmade surfboard bags from Italy. We love them, they are gorgeous! Why cover up your surfboard with a plain old boring surfboard bag? It’s time for change!
Fede Surfbags are built for adventure and salty trips, made by talented graphic artist and passionate surfer Fede Ubertone. As Fede is a surfer herself, she knows about the importance of a good surfboard bag. A bag that protects the board from dings and dirt. Therefore, she choose to make sustainable surfboard bags that are made to last.
We all know what board bags are but what the heck are Sling Bags?.. you might ask yourself. Well, it’s quite simple actually. It’s a bag that fits around the middle of your board and has straps so you can carry your board on your shoulder. In the bag there is plenty of space to take wax or flipflops. They come in all sorts of beautiful prints and colors. Check it out in the video.
The artwork is hand painted with the use of a traditional coloring process. In this image Fede is working on her ‘Monkey’ artwork.
Apart from board bags you also find tote bags, yoga bags and more in her shop.
Fede has chosen to combine her two passions of surfing and graphic design. She travels to surf and collaborates with local artisans for her bags. That way she is also empowering small communities worldwide. Fede: “And the best part is that I meet crazy awesome people all around the world thanks to it! ” So inspiring!
