About this event

Sarah is the creator of the RiutBag and has just succesfully funded her second Kickstarter project for £42,000 in just four days!

Sarah is not a bag designer by trade. She was simply a rucksack user. She believe's users are perfectly placed to spot design faults and come up with simple, user focussed solutions.

Until last year she was a very regular commuter between Reading and London, and also between England and Germany. It was on her regular travel that she realised that her trusty rucksack was the wrong way round. She thought of the RiutBag and felt it made a lot more sense.

Riut, pronounced "riot", stands for Revolution in user thinking. It's her disruptive but positive design mantra. It's a description of the RiutBag - the body of which has revolved to be more user focussed - and the way she run's her startup. She revolves all her thinking around you, the user.

Revolution in user thinking is the business model behind the urban design startup which will make RiutBags.
