The Pakuma range of laptop bags has a pretty amazing upstart story, and here is a snippit, from the owner Christian Dew and his experience while on holiday in Venezuela.
After spending some more time in the area within the local community, I started to learn more and became inspired. I learned more about the people who had lived in these lands for so long. The Pemon tribe, an indigenous folk, rely on there handed down skills and traditions to hunt, fish, construct housing and cultivate various fruits and vegetables. They were also great craftsman making various tools and receptacles for storing goods and belongings. They choose the very best materials from the environment and applied their skills to craft these objects. They did their intended job, were very reliable and went on working time after time.
I was inspired by the amazing workmanship and durability. So when I came to design our bags I applied what I had learnt from the Pemon. We use proven, high performance materials. We select the best quality fittings available. We make sure that each and every bag is made to the highest standards, and made to last. We make sure they are durable and practical, with some really useful details. Some of which you’ll only really appreciate when you use your bag, again and again.
We decided to base our company name PAKUMA™ on a Pemon word ‘to carry’. To remind us always of what we first set out to do, make objects that did their intended job, were very reliable and went on working time after time. Our logo also seemed fitting. It was presented to me by the wearer of that broad smile. I was told the bright red jasper would keep me in good health. As for the symbol, he would keep me safe on my travels and future adventures. It protects me to this day.
So a good rule to base you company on wouldn’t you say? Well today, we are looking at the Pakuma AKARA K2 Bag that has room for a 17-inch laptop inside. Let us find out if the bag is indeed well made and durable. Or if it is all a bit of hype.
