Vogue recently called all designers to finally stop putting cats on clothes. What? No! We don’t want this trend to end….EVER!!! And luckily BUZZFEED proofs that the combination of cats and sweaters is always a good idea.
To celebrate the ongoing international cat movement we just launched “The Cat” on this super comfy oversize sweatshirt.
100% Conversation-Starter-Guarantee: We’ve already tested “The Cat” on several party occasions and we promise you, you’ll shine extra bright next to all the folks wearing old-school holiday sweaters at the next holiday party.
Our daily mission: finding functional yet fashionable bicycle accessories. A real challenge are for example backpacks. There are definitely a lot of high-quality products out there, but it took us such a long time to find a model, that also lives up to our expectations in terms of design, look and style.
We’re girls and we love to dress up on our ride and ok… we admit that we sometimes choose style over functionality. But sorry – most of the indeed very practical bike messenger bags and backpacks simply don’t go with dresses and in our opinion only look good on hot bike messengers.
But we found a solution for our daily style vs. functionality dilemma, especially when it comes to cycling to work with laptop, extra clothes, make-up bag, books, and all that unnecessary extra loading girls tend to carry in their purse.
The solution is called THE URBAN, a backpack / shoulder bag hybrid by designer duo KL KP KARELL KAPPL from Barcelona, is handmade from rugged cotton canvas, vegetable-tanned leather handles and brass trimmings. The comfort and ease of this beautifully designed backpack combined with high-quality craftsmanship is what had us fell in love with it immediately and we proudly welcome it to the Allthatiwant family.
Available in three colors in our shop.

We just came across “Afghan Cycles” – a short documentary film about the Women’s National Cycling Team of Afghanistan and an incredible story about the power and beauty of women and bicycles. We can’t agree more…
Description: “The bicycle has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world. It gives a woman a feeling of freedom and self-reliance. The moment she takes her seat she knows she can’t get into harm unless she gets off her bicycle, and away she goes, the picture of free, untrammeled womanhood.” – Susan B. Anthony
“Nowhere is this quote more true than in Afghanistan today. Afghan Cycles introduces the first women to ride bikes in the country, illustrating the gender and social barriers that the team is breaking, one pedal stroke at a time. Highlighting 4 of the 12 teammates, we look at their lives on and off the bike. From training on dangerous trucking highways to following them through a typical day in Kabul, the film shares the intimate story of these brave and passionate young women who feel free when they are on their bikes in an otherwise oppressive culture”.
