Hey folks!

I am stoked to join this amazing forum. Big up to StP!

Let's introduce myself ;

I make handmade quality backpacks and gear for bike courier and travelers, and currently designing dog backpack harnesses.

I have a small sewing shop with industrial sewing machines, in which I am constantly looking for new projects and out of the box design.

Right now, I am planning on making a series of backpacks, pouches, utility belts and more for train hopping, hitch hiking, squatting, travelling and all that great stuff.

By joining this forum, I want to offer my skills to help you out with DIY project and give you the opportunity to get your hand on whatever kind of backpack style, hip pouches, tools cases, electronic device accessories, utility belts, pet gear, cycling gear or anything that you would be interested in for a cheap and friendly price.

I use quality weater repellant materials such as Ballistic and Cordura nylon, truck tarp vinyls and UVR bonded polyester thread for maximum durability. I make extremely resistant products that you will have for a really long period of time, even in the harshest environments such as travelling and squatting the planet by all your favourite transport and living methods.

With all that said, I hope we can share great thoughts and have a great time talking.

I speak mainly French, but always trying to do my best in English.

Send me a private message if interested in a custom order and/or go take a look at my Etsy shop at kinowashop(dot)etsy(dot)com

(Etsy shop currently in construction - more stuff are available in stock than on the Etsy page - just send me a message)

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $75.00 of $75.00 - reached!
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $100.00 of $100.00 - reached!
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $105.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
