Move over Paris. Kashyyyk (aka Wookiee Planet C, G50623, or Edean) is now home to a booming galactic fashion accessory business.

The Chewbacca Messenger Bag is a semi-faithful replica of the bag sported by fuzzy Chewbacca in the "Star Wars" series. The strap looks like a flat version of the one Chewbacca wore. There's a subtle embossed "Star Wars" logo on the front.

The whole thing is made of brown faux leather, so no Ewoks were harmed in the making of this fashion accessory. In a nod to the geek audience, the bag can hold an 11-inch laptop or tablet, has two cell phone pockets, and closes with magnets.

The bag originally popped up as an exclusive at Comic-Con, but you can drop $74.99 for your share of the limited quantities currently available at ThinkGeek. The fur suit is regrettably not included.

The Chewbacca bag replica is almost subtle enough to pass as a regular messenger bag, but it will immediately trigger the "Star Wars" perimeter alert system of any faithful fan who sets eyes on it. Just remember, this is a Wookiee purse, not a man purse.
