Rethinking Hardware - Cyclus

Electrical plug and receptacle used for securing messenger bag flap
While browsing the goodies at Base, on Lincoln Road in South Beach, we were electrified (zzzzzzaaaap!) by the re-purposing of this simple hardware store staple! It may take a few more seconds to open and close than an ordinary magnetic clasp BUT so much much more interesting. Isn't it worth it?
Cyclus makes super cool messenger bags and purses made from rubber

Here is the entire bag.  Latex is indeed pretty.
