What happens when you combine an elevated aesthetic with a passion for cannabis and demand for discretion? You get Van der Pop, the Seattle-based brainchild of designer and entrepreneur April Pride, for those who are all about enjoying their hidden agenda. The brand’s Happy Sack, a storing or carrying case for your stash, is so sleek, chic and expensive-looking the name doesn’t necessarily do it justice.
Satin-finished Italian leather with contrasting white patent lining (you can always discern the quality of a bag, made to house secrets or not, by the lining) for easy cleaning gives way to a heavy-duty metal lock that lets you choose how you want to safe-keep. Access the case by three-digit code or key. More specifically, put the key to good use if the code slips your mind. A single-snap closure keeps items secure if you don’t feel the need to put them on lockdown. Van der Pop’s vibe is so neutral and atypical of most cannabis-specific products it wouldn’t even be weird to use a Happy Sack to house say, classified documents, precious jewels or covert unmentionables.
Happy Sack is available in two sizes and starts at $325.
