A bag for Tom
This week was a special week for us here in our new home in Lanzarote. After 2 years of cancelations due to Covid, our dear friends Tom and Wayne made it all the way from South Carolina to visit us. We had a wonderful 10 day visit with them, and toured all the hotspots and favourite restaurants on the island with them.
They had never been to the islands before so it was a special visit for them both, we loved having them here and sharing our home with them. While they were here it was a special birthday for my friend Tom, so as his gift I asked him to choose fabrics and I made him this bag, which he thoroughly loves.
Tom and I chose a leatherette, and a cork combination for his bags outer and a cotton lining, the bags can be made out of all leatherette, all cork, lined with cotton or canvas, the choices are endless.
It's a simple bag, with just 3 pockets, an accessible phone pouch at the top, a front zip pocket for smaller items, and a secure large sipper pouch on the rear. It can be worn two ways, securely and close to the body, allowing only you to access the compartments, or more freely on the shoulder for a more casual look. It's super slim, light and has a very ergonomic profile, so it's ideal for travel.
I shared this bag to Instagram when it was made, and immediately had a request from a customer for another. Colours were chosen via messages, and upon posting THAT one to Instagram, I had another 4 orders for custom bags.
If you're thinking of gifting a small cute bag to a loved one this holiday season, why not choose to have an original one made exclusively for them, using their favourite colours and styles. Get in touch here and I'd be happy to talk you through colours and designs.
