Bay Area-based apparel brand, Upper Playground, has teamed up with Portland bag maker Chrome Industries to release a special limited edition messenger bag to celebrate the label’s 20th anniversary.
The limited edition Upper Playground x Chrome Industries Citizen Messenger Bag is handmade by Chrome Industries at its facilities in Chicago and San Francisco.
Each bag features a custom tarp liner printed with Upper Playground’s 20th anniversary logo pattern, a 20th anniversary patch, and an inside panel with “Fowl Mood” owl wallpaper by SF-based artists and illustrator, Jeremy Fish. The latter is a throwback to Chrome Industries’ 2009 Artist Series bags with Upper Playground by Jeremy Fish and Sam Flores.
Upper Playground x Chrome Industries Citizen Messenger Bag sells for $180 a pop, but the thing is, only 20 pieces are up for grab. What makes it more collectible is, you can’t simply go in and pick up one.
It is only available through an online lottery through Chrome Hubs and UP stores. To learn more on how you get the chance to acquire this beautiful messenger bag, hit up either Chrome Industries web page HERE or Upper Playground web page HERE.
