In areas such as sports car manufacturing, carbon has become an essential material offering numerous advantages. It is up to 25 per cent lighter than compar-able materials such as aluminium and yet possesses the same strength and durability. The new Porsche Design Carbon Weekender is part of a finely tuned series of accessories that make use of this material in a fascinating manner. Featuring an elegant design and harmoniously balanced appearance, the weekender still provides plenty of space inside. In addition, the use of real carbon fibres makes the bag extremely robust and durable. Thus well protected from external influences, it is perfectly made for daily use. The timeless look and design of the model has been optimised by the functional configuration of the exterior pocket featuring a smooth, oversized two-way zipper and glossy-black metallic snaps on the sides. Easy opening and closing is guaranteed even in the event of users searching for something fast. The exclusive look of the bag is further emphasised by the additionally applied elements made of black nappa leather. This unusual design style captures the high-tech character of the material and making it an outstandingly attractive accessory – material and design forming an impressing symbiosis.
