About Asymptotes

*We make bags for people who love design.*Asymptotes is the collaborative work of graphic designer Isaac Gertman and his mother Ilene Gertman, a seasoned quilter and craftsperson. Asymptotes brings together the worlds of craft and design, using reclaimed and odd lots of designer fabrics from companies like Knoll and Maharam, featuring designs by 20th Century masters and 21st Century visionaries. With an eye for design and hand for craft, Asymptotes creates bags that are both fashionable and functional. In 2010, we've added a line of pillows after several requests.
Our bags come in 3 sizes:The Curator is strong enough to carry your heaviest loads without sacrificing style. The front and back panels are 15 inches square, with a 5 inch inset all around for structure and roominess.
The Aficionado is our signature bag size, balancing the need for utility and style. It measures 14 inches tall by 14 inches wide by with a 5 inch bottom and gently widens to 19 inches at the top.
We created the Draftsman for those who need a classic tote that is flat and professional with minimal bulk. It measures 14 inches tall and 13.5 inches wide.
