When we first started The Bumbag Co we decided to kick things off by throwing a barge wall ride comp at an empty car sales lot in downtown O'side, shit was all time. I remember Bob saying he wanted to invite Franky Villani to roll through. That was the first time I saw Franky skate in real life. He was larking on a tiny flat bar and the smallest hip known to man, but I remember thinking 'this dude is having more fun than anyone else skating here'.
Not long after that we got hit up to put in a window graphic at a skate shop and Franky was our first choice on who to run. Creativity is an understatement. Franky is one of those skaters that you could watch all day long, you never know what to expect when he is rolling around and if you blink for to long you'll miss it. Someone once said that Franky is a skaters favourite skater, I don’t think it could be put much better than that.
When we decided that we wanted to release a line of Signature Series bags for Summer 2019, it was a no brainier for us to invite Frankie to design a bag. Franky's compact shoulder bag is made from blue synchilla (think Patagonia fleece) with a printed nylon liner that Franky designed and red hits to get you feeling like the neighbourhood spider man as you hit the streets.
Shouts out Franky!
Thank you for backing us.
